Interpretation of Field is a collaborative project housed at Faculty of Information, the University of Toronto, designed to document and share current practices of interpretation professionals in four types of museums. Our main data-collecting tool is a survey, which we developed to take the pulse of contemporary practices in museum interpretation and to map out tools, strategies and knowledge used by practitioners. This research is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, Canada’s federal research funding agency.
If you are an interpretation professional working in an art museum/centre, an encyclopedic/general (multi-disciplinary) museum, a natural history/anthropology museum, or a science/technology museum/centre, we invite you to take our survey between Jan. 2 and March 1, 2020.
Results will be available on the project’s website in Summer 2020.
