Choices made by individuals, local communities, and the nation, impact contents of displays at tourist attractions and in museum exhibits. But who decides what will be shown? The answer to this question, hotly debated in the museum community, remains uncertain. This course examines representations of “Otherness” in exhibitions across the United States. It will employ a variety of sources, including University of Michigan museums to examine the ways displays of difference across cultures, gender, and class inform Americans’ understanding of themselves and their nation.
