Presenting Race: Institutional Contexts and Critiques

Keywords: Race, Museums, Pittsburgh, Collecting Knowledge, Museum, Culture


This special issue was inspired by the inaugural Consortium Workshop, Race-ing the Museum, funded by the A.W. Mellon Foundation. The contributions are mostly drawn from the participants of the workshop and their collaborators and students on projects begun after the workshop. Coming from  anthropology, art, communication, education, and theatre arts, the articles in this edition are extremely diverse, taking a broad understanding of institutions. Like the workshop, this issue seeks to contribute to dialogues between fields surrounding issues of race, representation, and institutions.
