A platform from within the Museum Studies MA program, the mission of the Forum on Museums and Religion is to unite museum professionals and religious authorities (of different faiths) to discuss common issues posed by role and identity of sacred space and the placement of sacred objects in museum contexts in different parts of the world.
Our biennial public conferences are published in a bilingual (English and Italian) series by Edifir (first two volumes) and from volume three, the LdM Press.
