These conference proceedings are a comprehensive record of the discussion, debate and insights explored at the National Museums: Negotiating Histories conference in July 1999. This publication encapsulates the latest thinking on how national museums can accommodate different perspectives and understandings of place, history and society. Contributors explore how museums present Indigenous and settler/migrant histories and cultures, and environmental histories in postcolonial societies, particularly South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. They also explore the contemporary issues through which different groups in postcolonial societies engage each other.
