For the 2007 Popular Culture Association (PCA)/American Culture Association
(ACA) Conference in Boston, Massachusetts, from April 4th to April 7th.
"The Popularization of German Museum Culture."
Papers are sought that examine how German museum culture resists, and takes part
in the larger trends of popularization of culture, as well as why museums in
German-speaking countries have taken such stances. How do, to take three
seemingly highly divergent examples, the Jewish Museum in Berlin, the Pinakothek
der Moderne in Munich, and the Autostadt in Wolfsburg fit into a trajectory of
such a popularization?
