New publication: Babel Tower, Museum People in Dialogue Publications

Time for dialogue, time for finding common ground. A Babelian tale of museology has already been analysed by theorists and historians of this cross-cultural discipline1. Nonetheless, few agreements have been made on specific terms, methods and basic scientific parameters for the field of museum theory and practice up until the present. This book and the round of debates entitled Babel Tower: Museum people in dialogue, organised by the Université de Liège (Belgium) in collaboration with the University of Catania, with participation from the Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias (Portugal), has brought together different voices and approaches to the museum, exposing such a museological Babel.

Editors: Manuelina Maria Duarte Cândido and Giusy Pappalardo

Foreword: Bruno Brulon
