Title Ethnographic Representations of Self and The Other in Museums: Ideas of Identity and Modernity
Author Yap, Yee-Yin
Date 2014
English abstract
The thesis examines how ethnography museums, in inventing and reinforcing the desire for modernity through their exhibiting clout, have been representing Self and the Other via the nexus that connects issues of identity, race, and difference. Based on research conducted using textual analysis and interviews to museum visitors, the thesis examines whether modern ethnography museums are moving past their colonial frameworks and managing to integrate the voices and experiences of the post-colonial Other through the lenses of heritage, history, and memory.
