  • Future Consciousness

    • Authors: Anders Högberg, Cornelius Holtorf, Gustav Wollentz
      Pages: 5–22 - 5–22
      Abstract: This study investigates how managers and employees at County Museums in Sweden think about, work with, and relate to the future in their daily practice. We examined which tools and routines the museums employ to work concretely with different future perspectives. The study is thus about those forms of future consciousness that exist in the museums. The results show that the future is implicitly present but often remains unarticulated in the work of the museum. The museums work with short future perspectives which are often linked to concrete tasks or development work. The future perspectives at the museums are largely locked in the present or in a near future. Concrete tools, skills and routines to develop future consciousness are lacking. However, the results show that there is great interest and willingness among Swedish County Museums to implement tools, skills, and routines for a more developed engagement with futures.

  • The museum as a social space and a place for lifelong learning

    • Authors: Gustav Wollentz, Martin Brandt Djupdræt, Anna Hansen, Lasse Sonne, Vibeke Kieding Banik
      Pages: 23–4 - 23–4
      Abstract: This article explores the social dimensions of the museum by focusing on two questions: 1) What elements in museums have proved successful in creating socially interactive environments' 2) Does social interaction stimulate learning in museums and if so: how' We argue that museums are fundamentally social spaces, which are often appreciated and used as spaces to be social, but also that there is a lack of research and knowledge on how museums act as social spaces in particular, and what kind of learning social interaction in museums stimulate. We are applying the tool Generic Learning Outcomes to approach these questions. By mapping and analysing 30 museum spaces and evaluating 25 activities in Norway, Sweden and Denmark, we have managed to identify a set of elements useful for making museum spaces more social. We have also been able to trace a connection between social interaction in museums and how the museum experience contributes to learning.

  • Museum Activism for Equine Welfare

    • Authors: Anita Maurstad
      Pages: 43–5 - 43–5
      Abstract: The article argues that we legitimise the use of nature through cultural nature rationales. We adapt our understanding of nature to how we want to use it in a cultural sense. The material for the discussion is equine husbandry, using a past and contemporary perspective. The treatment of the horses that Robert Falcon Scott brought with him on his south pole expedition in 1910–1912, and the treatment of horses today were and are culturally acceptable. However, researchers in the field of equine science and some experts in horse keeping believe some of our contemporary understanding of horses may be problematic for horse welfare. The many cultural versions of the nature of horses is a topic that lends itself well to museological discussions. Usually, museums only present horses as representatives of a biological species. A stronger museum-activism approach looks at horses as culturally produced and as individuals with personalities shaped in interaction between horse and human. This can create new and better versions of horses, better for horse welfare in the future.

  • Objects, traditions, and the hermeneutics of Viking heritage

    • Authors: Åmund Norum Resløkken
      Pages: 56–7 - 56–7
      Abstract: This article discusses the work that Vestfold and Telemark County in Norway has performed to consolidate its heritage actors and institutions under the umbrella of “Viking Age heritage” and the role digital tools have played in this effort. The article’s focus revolves around an analysis of an introductory digital installation at the Midgard Viking Centre at Borre in Horten municipality and how that installation communicates ideas about the Vikings and the Viking Age in terms of Viking heritage. The article argues that at the Borre site, Viking Age heritage is explained using interpretive registers assumed by the visitors, which in turn the visitors use to renegotiate the value of Vikings and the Viking Age through a hermeneutical process. This, in turn, frames the Viking and the Viking Age as heritage. The article further argues that this process hinges on registers of both material archaeological artifacts and immaterial “tradition,” two relations to the past that activate different registers of historical knowledge and that are sought to be conflated in the Viking Age effort.

  • Topic Cultural Heritage

    • Authors: Pelle Snickars
      Pages: 73–9 - 73–9
      Abstract: In an explorative manner this article uses a data driven digital history set-up to focus on broad cultural heritage issues in Sweden during the second half of the 20th century. By distant reading and topic modeling a dataset of 3100 Swedish Government Official Reports (SOU) between 1945–89, the article gives a new perspective of how the Swedish state examined and discussed national cultural heritage as well as archival, library and museum (ALM) issues. Topic modeling is a computational method to study themes or discourses in texts by accentuating words that tend to co-occur and together create different topics. Via a computational interrogation of the dataset in a Jupyter Lab-environment a number of heritage topics related to the ALM-sector can be detected. They include the most common words for each heritage topic, but also reveal temporal periodisations when archival, library and museum issues were mostly discussed as well as other societal topics in the dataset that heritage was related to.

  • The innocent secret of things

    • Authors: Bosse Bergstedt
      Pages: 97–1 - 97–1
      Abstract: In Istanbul, there is The Museum of Innocence created by the writer Orhan Pamuk. A unique museum based on the author’s novel of the same name. The story is about Kemal who falls in love with Füsun and who for eight years collects objects to preserve the happy moments he had with her. Objects in the museum are collected in 83 cases, as many as the chapters of the novel. This makes the museum a suitable place to explore how connections are made between humans and matter. In the article, this is done through analyses based on posthumanism and new materialist perspectives. The result of these shows how bodies and matter come into being through intra-actions and the significance that glowing moments have for these entanglements. It creates an understanding of what Kemal expresses when he says that the meaning of life is to have “happiness” in individual moments.

  • Thomas Bisp and the face of time

    • Authors: Anne Dorthe Holm
      Pages: 109– - 109–
      Abstract: In 1822, Danish farmer Thomas Thomassen Bisp was beheaded for the murder of his wife. After the execution his body was parted and laid on wheels, and the head was spiked onto a steep. The remains of the criminal were buried at an unknown place. But in 1900 the head, still spiked, was unearthed by accident, and ever since the skull has been housed in the Vendsyssel Historiske Museum in Hjørring, Denmark. This article discusses how the status of the skull has changed over time, since it first landed in a cultural history museum a mere 80 years after the beheading of Bisp. Drawing on concepts from the history of knowledge the article explains how the status of the skull has changed continuously through negotiations between changing museum directors, outside authorities, the general public and not least the descendants of Thomas Bisp.

  • Museum and school

    • Authors: Gitte Bastiansen
      Pages: 126– - 126–
      Abstract: This article examines teacher motivations for museum visits, as well as how teachers understand museums. Nine primary and secondary school teachers were interviewed. The results draw a complex picture of teachers’ understanding of museums as alternative educational places. Furthermore, the article shows that schools have changed significantly over the past couple of decades when it comes to use of international student tests, an increase in the use of digital devices and learning resources, and Norway’s implementation of new curriculums both in 2006 and in 2020. Understanding the school’s perspective by examining teachers’ motivation, as this article contributes to, allows museums to explore a multitude of facets in their potential as an alternative educational arena for schools today.
