If you are looking for the big picture as it concerns museums and gender, this book will not be of great assistance. It gives certain examples from researchers but I do not think that the editor has done a very good job grouping them. I found myself confused as I was looking for examples of how male representatives outrate female representantives in the displays; the book unfortunately did not meet my expectations.

A Must Read for Museologists 25 Nov. 2011
By Erin - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a first year graduate student studying museums with an interest in gender and sexuality this book completes the understanding of the history of museums, Queer history and the representation within museums. While I have not read every chapter (yet), each one enhances the foundation of museums that I am learning in class. Every chapter makes me wish two things, 1) that this was a part of the required reading for my intro class and 2) that I could re write all my papers this quarter. This is the source that I was looking for that would have made my arguments less "rants" and more "academic." Read it, you wont regret it!
