Museums as Ritual Sites is a celebration and critical engagement with Carol Duncan’s Civilizing Rituals: Inside Public Art Museums (Routledge, 1995). Published 25 years ago, this book changed the way we understand the cultural role of museums.

This project will bring together interdisciplinary experts from across the globe to address the question: How do museums function as ritual sites today?
