This volume is a guide to the difficult ethical questions museums work entails. Promoting the value of ethical theory and practice in museums, Edson tackles a number of key questions and also corrects a number of the prevailing misconceptions about museum ethics, such as the difference between social morals and professional ethics as they relate to the museum context.
Drawing on the author’s extensive teaching experience, Museum Ethics in Practice offers clear and practical guidance on the application of ethics to the museums profession. Using example-driven arguments which incorporate varied case studies from around the world, this is an excellent resource for Museum Studies students and professionals currently working in museums.
