Vikingtiden er en av de mest populære tidsepokene i moderne historiefremstillinger. Forestillinger om vikinger og vikingtiden er ofte preget av stereotypier, en av dem er den kvinnelige krigeren. Men fantes det egentlig kvinnelige krigere?
“Exhibitions—successes and muted potentials”
Ways to exhibit research based knowledge
This seminar aims to create an atmosphere for a free exchange of ideas about what makes some exhibitions into successes in terms of their capacity to convey research based knowledge, while some other exhibitions never manage to convey their potentially powerful message about significant research findings. Whether an exhibition is seen as successful depends obviously on the criteria directing the evaluation, and in the context of this seminar, the emphasis is on research findings. However, whether a museum is seen to succeed in its’ effort, also depends on who the respondents / public are, that is, whether it is the museum itself, certain categories among the public or the broader public.
During the seminar, the invited speakers will share with us experiences from their own engagement with collections, research and the potentiality of knowledge dissemination within museum contexts. Some questions to ask are, for instance, why some exhibitions becomes great successes while others, despites all odds, become failures? What happens in situation where the museum and the public disagree on the successfulness and/or failure of an exhibition?
