Interchange – Curating Culture: Museums and Meaning


Tonight on Interchange host Doug Storm is joined by Jason Baird Jackson, Director of the Mathers Museum of World Cultures at Indiana University and Eric Sandweiss a professor in the Department of History at Indiana University to try to answer the question “What are museums for?” by examining the ways these institutions work to create and define the culture they are said to represent.
