2. National museum narratives
Museum studies, Leicester University, 18-20 June 2007

Hence an institution is created as part of national policy and historical culture. A focus on narrative aspects of museum performance needs to be carefully considered not to be stranded on neither abstract functions of inclusions and exclusions or detailed iteration of exhibitions.
