Call for Papers – Theory and Practice:

The Emerging Museum Professionals Journal is accepting papers for
consideration for its third volume: “Museum Futures: Museums as Change Agents.”
In this third volume 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 & 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.

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