Through readings, field trips, guest lectures, and class discussions, students will become familiar with the history of collecting, from the Renaissance to the present-day, and learn how different types of institutions (art museums, historical societies, natural history museums), curators, and museum professionals function. They will also investigate the complex moral, ethical, and technological issues currently facing collecting institutions.
