Museum International is an academic journal that promotes the exchange of information about museums and cultural heritage on an international level. The journal aims to foster knowledge-sharing through interdisciplinary research and best practices for the protection of cultural heritage in a fast-changing world. Published by UNESCO since 1948 and with Wiley-Blackwell since 1992, publishing rights for the journal were transferred from UNESCO to ICOM in 2013.
Alongside ICOM’s 2016 General Conference in Milan, Italy, the next issue of Museum International Vol. 68, No. 271 – 272 will reflect upon the role museums play in the complex relationship between landscapes and identity. The theme Museums and cultural landscapes was developed to encourage reflection on the museum’s specific relationship with its context: landscape is, precisely, the context in which we live and which surrounds us, with all of the images and symbols that identify and characterise it.
