University Museums Symposium -- memories of town and university

2014-11-23 (Sun) 1:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

The Museum of Osaka University began holding symposiums on topics pertinent to the university museum in 2013. This symposium will be held on Sunday, November 23, and will discuss the relationship between the university and local communities and how the museum deals with the history of the university and how it shares that with society. Centering on issues of its history and "memory," this symposium will feature case reports and discussions. In Part 1, researchers will talk about how universities deal with their histories, their relationships with neighboring communities, as well as what exhibitions and courses universities should provide from their viewpoint as research organizations. In Part 2, based on the reports in Part 1, participants will discuss the role of a university museum and its relationship with its local communities in the future.
