Abstract

A review article of three separate books by Stephen Conn, Charlotte Klonck and Christopher Whitehead that raise the importance of questions of subjectivity and objectivity within museum studies. The article critically reviews their work and analyses the importance of issues of subjectivity, objectivity in the context of spataility within museum studies. It goes on to highlight some of the key theoretical questions that these works highlight for research into museums.
