Annual Museum Studies Symposium: Native American Cultures and Contemporary Museum Practice

Native American artifacts in museum collections are often at the center of controversy. Who really owns them? Who decides what can be exhibited? And how do museums work with Native American communities and government when artifacts are returned to the original tribes? This year’s Museum Studies Symposium brings together two distinguished scholars from the Smithsonian Institution, Candace Greene and Dorothy Lippert, as well as Melissa Biggs from the University of Texas at Austin, to discuss the complicated issues surrounding Native American artifacts in today’s museum practice.

Sponsored by the Blanton Museum, The UT Humanities Institute, and UT Museum Studies.
