Human Remains and Museum Practice explores fundamental issues of collecting and displaying human remains, including ethics, interpretation and repatriation as they apply in different parts of the world. This volume reflects the controversial discussions that were held at the Museum of London as part of an international symposium on the political and ethical dimensions of the collection and display of human remains in museums. It represents a second publication devoted to exploring diversity and promoting intercultural dialogue in museum practice.

Jack Lohman is Director of the Museum of London, Professor at the Bergen National Academy of the Arts and was previously CEO of IZIKO Museums of Cape Town.

Katherine Goodnow is Associate Professor at the Department of Information Science and Media Studies at the University of Bergen, Norway.
