            For centuries, M ori treasures, or taonga, have been some of the most prized, popular and precious objects held in museums around the world. From Te Maori to Te Papa and beyond, initiatives in Aotearoa New Zealand over the last 30 years have continued to provide new models for mu...seums around the world. With this has changed the role of museum staff who face new challenges in collecting, caring for and exhibiting the taonga of the M ori people in partnership with iwi (tribes) as well as developments involving the repatriation of human remains, the opening of cultural centres, and debates over identity, cultural property and heritage management. How do museum professionals deal with the indigenous objects in their care from day to day? How do they engage on a practical level with tribal communities? How do museums structure themselves to meet the needs of visitors as well as these communities? For the first time ever, Museums and Maori answers these questions. Using practical examples and the voices of the indigenous professionals and community representatives who have transformed museum practice in New Zealand over the past three decades, this all-new book provides an up-to-the-minute snapshot of New Zealand museums today across the whole range of museum work: mission and governance, management and staffing, collection care and management, exhibition development, education and public programmes, research and training. Ground-breaking initiatives - and their legacies - are revealed through interviews, policy documents, images and observations of professionals at work in museums ranging from the national museum Te Papa to the tiniest regional galleries. Museums and Maori addresses a major gap in the literature and a yawning gulf in professional training, making it indispensible as a reader for students, a handbook for professionals and a critical study relevant to the academic fields of museum and heritage studies, anthropology, art history, cultural studies, history,

            Survivor Memorials: Remembering Trauma and Loss in Contemporary Australia

            Survivor Memorials: Remembering Trauma and Loss in Contemporary Australia (Paperback)

            This is a book about memorials - specifically about a new type of memorial that commemorates experiences of survivors. These new memorials acknowledge loss and trauma that people have lived through, rather than died because of. It is also a book about why people feel the need to ...remember such difficult experiences. As such, it combines a topic that has strong scholarly interest with human stories of pain and resilience from Australia's recent history. The first half of the book outlines the emergence of this new genre of commemoration in three stages: early explorations through community and public art projects in the 1980s and 90s; the adoption of traditional memorial forms from the late 1990s; and the creation of government-funded and commissioned memorials as part of the adoption of transitional justice practices of symbolic reparations since the mid 2000s. Alongside international interest in the field of memory studies, there is local interest in the stories behind these memorial projects. The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse has already been the catalyst for a number of new memorial projects, and has produced clashes between survivors and church groups about the best ways to acknowledge their suffering. This book, therefore, is timely, as it offers an opportunity for people to learn from past experiences. The book includes six case study chapters, each of which tell the story of the development of a different Australian memorial. The background to each of these projects is a heart-breaking story of loss and trauma, but many of the stories of the memorial development are stories of resilience, and of unlikely friendships and connections.
