Journal Article — Immigrant Communities, Cultural Institutions and Political Space: The Success of the Immigration Museum in Melbourne, Australia — by Ilham Boumankhar
This article explores the concept of immigration as it is processed by the Immigration Museum in Melbourne, Australia, through the analysis of an investigation that was conducted on public museum, and the presentation of several interviews with the manager of Immigration museum, the senior curator and the manager of the Community Exhibitions. It examines how the relationship between the museum, immigrant communities and the political context establish the Australian immigration museum as a recognized social actor.
