Book Launch and Talk by Dr Marie Bourke

Book launch and talk by Dr Marie Bourke on 'The Story of Irish Museums 1790-2000: Culture, Identity and Education'

Dr Marie Bourke's 'The Story of Irish Museums 1790-2000: Culture, Identity and Education', published by Cork University Press, is a wide-ranging history, incorporating the founding and the progression of the key institutions in Irish cultural history. It looks at the collectors and collections that form the basis of the national collections. Also addressed is the public role of the museum, the theoretical models upon which modern museums were established and the cross-cultural influences that allowed the museum cultures of Britain and America to find fertile ground in Ireland.
Dr Marie Bourke is Keeper and Head of Education at the National Gallery of Ireland. She has lectured widely, and written and edited a number of books. A former chairperson of the Irish Museums Association, she is an Adjunct Professor in the School of Art History and Cultural Policy, University College Dublin, and a member of the Governing Authority of the University of Limerick.
