Eunamus, European National Museums: Identity politics, the uses of the past and the European citizen, är ett nystartat treårigt forskningsprojekt som finansieras av EU och koordineras av professor Peter Aronsson vid Linköpings universitet. Med grund i en historisk och jämförande bakgrund undersöker projektet nationalmuseernas roller i framtidens Europa.
THE AIM OF EUNAMUS is to explore the dynamics of national museums and their roles in
a changing Europe. What are the institutional trajectories and contemporary forces that
shape national museum representations and negotiations? What views of identity, citizenship
and knowledge do they produce? What is the balance between change and continuity
or between European, national and regional forces, between claims of universality and
virtues of unity, or between civic enhancement, public education and city branding?
This three-year research project approaches these questions with a series of thematic
studies. Eight leading university institutions and their associated researchers will pursue
multidisciplinary research to further understand the creation and power of European
MAPPING AND FRAMING INSTITUTIONS 1750–2010. The public opening of the project is followed
by a two day workshop that sets the framework for the project’s first thematic study:
a historical and comparative analysis of the various trajectories for national museums.
