Overview

Museum, Media, Message considers in depth the most up-to-date approaches to museum communication, placing it in the context of mass communication and media studies. Contributors analyze the processes used by museums and galleries to construct and transmit complex

systems of value and legitimation. The collection also raises philosophical and management issues and provides case studies to introduce methods for studying audiences' experiences of communication events in museums. Museum, Media, Message is compiled for readers who want to

develop a more critical and informed professional practice in relation to museum and gallery audiences. It will also be of value to people in related fields who are interested in current debates and issues about museums.
