Egyptologists as museum curators: immersive training
The final aim of the Summer School is to provide all participants with a foundation for starting more specific programmes of curatorial work in museums.
The courses will provide:
- an archaeological and historical framework for contextualizing objects in the Museo Egizio within the society that produced them;
- a multifaceted museological approach for contextualizing objects within the collection (acquisition history, cataloguing, handling, documentation, conservation, display, public engagement);
- an introduction to the current methods for investigating the museum objects.
- the basics for the design, organisation, and display of a museum room in an Egyptological collection.
The Summer School will run from 2nd September to 9th September 2019.
All courses will be taught in English by leading experts of the University of Pisa and the Museo Egizio. No knowledge of Italian is required.
The deadline for submission of applications is 15th May 2019. For more information click here.
