A historical year for museums and museology

This year of 2022 marks the 50th anniversary of the renowned Round Table of Santiago de Chile and its Declaration, a document that has influenced museum theory, practice and policies to redefine inequalities and rethink hierarchies in the cultural sector worldwide. This is also a year of great transformation for museums and museology, once again facing societal changes and revising their political and social roles. For those investigating the museum phenomenon in its continuous evolution, this is a year that will leave some legacies for future studies and reflections.
