Exhibiting nation : multicultural nationalism (and its limits) in Canada's museums
Gordon-Walker, Caitlin, author
Toronto : UBC Press, 2016
Multicultural nationalism and the power of metaphor -- Museums, discipline, and dialogue -- The limits of unity in diversity -- The Royal BC Museum's modern history galleries -- The limits of equality and recognition -- The Royal Alberta Museum's cultural communities program -- The limits of universalism and diversity -- The Royal Ontario Museum's world cultures galleries.

"Canada's brand of nationalism celebrates diversity--so long as it doesn't challenge the unity, authority, or legitimacy of the state. Caitlin Gordon-Walker explores this tension between unity and diversity in three nationally recognized museums, institutions that must make judgments about what counts as "too different" in order to celebrate who we are as a people and nation through exhibits, programs, and design. Although the contradictions that lie at the heart of multicultural nationalism have the potential to constrain political engagement and dialogue, the sensory feasts on display in Canada's museums provide a space for citizens to both question and renegotiate the limits of their national vision."--

Women and museums, 1850-1914 : modernity and the gendering of knowledge
Hill, Kate, 1969- author
Manchester : Manchester University Press, 2016
"This is the first attempt to recover the entirety of women's contribution to British museums in the period 1850-1914. It sheds lights on women as museum workers, donors and visitors, demonstrates that through such roles women profoundly influenced the development of museums in the period and suggests that museums were a key site for the development of modern gendered identities"--Back cover.
