In addressing the subject of the representation of Islam in museums, this work undertakes to examine both its production and consumption. The production of representation and the creation of identity are achieved in museums through the medium of the display of material, whilst consumption occurs through the medium of visiting and the meaning made by visitors. In order to evaluate such production displays of Islamic material in museums are the subject of critical analysis. This research has a qualitative element and seeks to tap into the perceptions of museum visitors of current museum displays. Given the role played by museums in the construction of identity the questions underpinning this are firstly, what are the messages they receive about the world of Islam and secondly, what do these displays say about the Islamic world past and present?

Bringing together scholars and practitioners from North America, Europe, Russia, and Australia, this pioneering volume provides a global survey of how museums address religion and charts a course for future research and interpretation. Contributors from a variety of disciplines and institutions explore the work of museums from many perspectives, including cultural studies, religious studies, and visual and material culture. Most museums throughout the world – whether art, archaeology, anthropology or history museums – include religious objects, and an increasing number are beginning to address religion as a major category of human identity. With rising museum attendance and the increasingly complex role of religion in social and geopolitical realities, this work of stewardship and interpretation is urgent and important. Religion in Museums is divided into six sections: museum buildings, reception, objects, collecting and research, interpretation of objects and exhibitions, and the representation of religion in different types of museums. Topics covered include repatriation, conservation, architectural design, exhibition, heritage, missionary collections, curation, collections and display, and the visitor's experience. Case studies provide comprehensive coverage and range from museums devoted specifically to the diversity of religious traditions, such as the State Museum of the History of Religion in St Petersburg, to exhibitions centered on religion at secular museums, such as Hajj: Journey to the Heart of Islam, at the British Museum.

Bringing together an international forum of experts, this book looks at how museums, libraries and further public cultural institutions respond to the effects of globalisation, mobility and migration across Europe. It puts forward examples of innovative practice and policies that reflect these challenges, looking at issues such as how cultural institutions present themselves to and interact with multicultural audiences, how to support networking across European institutions, and share practice in core activities such as archiving interpreting and exhibiting artefacts. Academics, practitioners from museums and public institutions and policymakers explore theoretical and practical approaches from a range of different disciplines such as museum and cultural heritage studies, cultural memory studies, social anthropology, sociology of organizations, cultural heritage management and cultural heritage informatics.

The Touring Exhibitions Group's manual of good practice provides practical guidance for carrying out the many tasks associated with organizing or hosting exhibitions, and will be an invaluable work of reference for all those involved in touring exhibitions. As such, it complements the Standards for Touring Exhibitions, published by the Museums and Galleries Commission (MGC), which are concerned with what should be done and why. Both publications reconcile the practicalities of organizing and touring with current standards and practices in conservation. Touring Exhibitions is both authoritative and comprehensive, thanks to the experience of more than fifty contributors from all over Great Britain, representing a diversity of perspectives and specialisms. Their different themes and subjects are laced together by cross-references, so that the reader can consult the manual at almost any point and be directed to other sections where the original query has implications or consequences.

The Power of Representation traces the emergence of modern Egyptian national identity from the mid-1870s through the 1910s. During this period, a new class of Egyptian urban intellectuals—teachers, lawyers, engineers, clerks, accountants, and journalists—came into prominence. Adapting modern ideas of individual moral autonomy and universal citizenship, this group reconfigured religiously informed notions of the self and created a national sense of "Egyptian-ness" drawn from ideas about Egypt's large peasant population. The book breaks new ground by calling into question the notion, common in historiography of the modern Middle East and the Muslim world in general, that in the nineteenth century "secular" aptitudes and areas of competency were somehow separate from "religious" ones. Instead, by tying the burgeoning Islamic modernist movement to the process of identity formation and its attendant political questions Michael Gasper shows how religion became integral to modern Egyptian political, social, and cultural life.

From the fall of Rome to the beginning of the Renaissance, this comprehensive encyclopedia presents the full pageant of medieval times across the entire Old World - with articles on the New World, Africa, and the Far East as well. Twenty major essays underpin the text, while more than 600 entries provide specific information on everything from the Abbasid Dynasty and Peter Abelard to John Wycliffe and the Seal of Zug. Interspersed throughout are maps, diagrams and more than 250 colour and black-and-white illustrations which vividly display all the elements of everyday life, such as travel, commerce, religion and royalty. Also included are chronologies of important events, glossaries of medieval terminology and jargon, material on music, science, art, crafts and legend, genealogical charts and excerpts from the documents of the time. Interest in the Middle Ages is stronger than ever as it becomes increasingly evident that the modern period has much more in common with the medieval world than was previously imagined. No other reference work better illustrates this historical truth. Authoritative, entertaining and beautifully illustrated, The Pimlico Encylclopedia of the Middle Ages is an indispensable guide to one of the great periods in human history. The General Editor, Norman Cantor, is an internationally respected scholar of medieval history and the author of Inventing the Middle Ages, The Civilization of the Middle Ages and Medieval Lives.
