Summary, etc. "Science Museums in Transition addresses the critical, but often overlooked, issue of how science is presented to museum visitors. Exploring how science museums can adapt to a changing society, the book also considers whether science as objective and apolitical is an out-of-date construct, and if so, how museums can address the dynamic role of education in today's technologically based, individualist, rapidly changing and pluralist society. Drawing on contributions from academics and practitioners across the field, this collection of essays examines how museums can be more proactive in helping their audiences to use science for personal and public good, while at the same time acknowledging a historical bias that has excluded many from participation. This critical look at science museums leads to a redefinition of quality and impact that incorporates socio-cultural, economic, and political dimensions with respect to stakeholders from all backgrounds. Contributors to the volume also consider whether it might be possible for museums to partner with visitors, in order to develop methods that would facilitate the use of science for personal and social empowerment. Science Museums in Transition is intended to further discussion and debate on how museums address the political and social ramifications of science and, as such, should be of great interest to academics, researchers and postgraduate students working in the fields of museum studies, science, anthropology, education and history. It should also be essential reading for museum professionals around the globe"--
