“The Politics of Invisibility: Constructing Authenticity in the Industrial Museum”

Our study of Blist Hill Industrial Museum questions the notion of museums as memory-containers (Crane 2000). We suggest they can be sites of social amnesia depending on what they ignore, hide or forget--embracing a politics of invisibility. Our historical interpretation explores discourses shaping perceptions of social class and gender.
