Research Interests

My research, writing and public speaking are devoted to encouraging museums to look at their work from the perspectives of sustainability, relevance and testing long-held assumptions. I am interested in reflecting on traditional museum practices and exploring alternate ways of understanding and doing museum work. My research interests include:

  1. The design, organization and management of museums, including organizational change and innovation.
  2. The role and responsibilities of museums as social institutions, including the museum’s role in enhancing the quality of life by addressing community issues, interests and aspirations.
  3. The repatriation of indigenous material culture, with particular reference to the First Nations of North America.
