Launched in 2010, the University of Michigan Working Papers in Museum Studies serve as an outlet for museum scholars and professionals and advanced students to report on ongoing research and present new theoretical arguments in a peer-reviewed on-line publication. These papers—which derive from public presentations on the University of Michigan campus, faculty research, and the doctoral project of University of Michigan Museum Studies students—provide an opportunity for MSP to disseminate our distinctive “critical practice” perspective to the larger museum and heritage community through presenting exciting and provocative new scholarship that integrates theory and practice in the study of museums.

In Fall 2015, we launched a new series of working papers: Museum Studies Working Papers: Future Leaders, which features the work of talented U-M undergraduates who have undertaken substantive research on museum and heritage topics.
