Volume 9 number 1
April 2014

This internationally focused issue of reCollections: A Journal of Museums and Collections ranges far and wide:

  • Georgiana Fell investigates how museums are connecting with a wider audience via social media, using New Zealand’s national museum, the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Te Papa), as a case study
  • Luca Gefäller reveals how a tiny museum can produce compelling exhibitions on a shoestring budget, after he visits London's Museum of Immigration and Diversity
  • Peter Stanley uses the Sulabh International Museum of Toilets in New Delhi to focus his discussion of the important role museums can play in advocating social causes
  • Steven Cooke, Avril Alba and Donna-Lee Frieze analyse two Australian Holocaust museums to see how they construct ideas of community and place.

Also featured are reviews of a number of recent and current exhibitions.
