Call for Papers

Theory and Practice: The Emerging Museum Professionals Journal is now accepting papers for its third volume: “Museum Futures: Museums as Change Agents.”

In this installment of the “Museum Futures” series, we explore how museums are sites of change that can influence their communities at-large. The context of change can be considered broadly and might include society, education, politics, arts, the environment, and much more. Theory and Practice invites submissions from emerging professionals across the entire museum community, defined as institutions that utilize a collection to educate the public. Case studies, research papers, presentations, exhibition reviews, and book reviews are welcome.

There are no fees to submit or to publish, and all published articles will be free for all to read.

Deadline: January 20, 2020 to be included in the Summer 2020 volume.
