Introduction:In earlier conferences of NaMu: Making National Museums, we have explored the complexity of defining National Museums and laboured with contemporary narrative analyses. See namu.ep.liu.se and www.ep.liu.se/ecp_home/index.en.aspx?issue=030. The conference proceedings of the subsequent workshop – NaMu IV, which took an explicit historical and comparative outlook on national museums – are also available on www.ep.liu.se/ecp/030/.

The third conference in the series held at University of Oslo 19-21 November 2007 specifically dealt with how diversity and difference are negotiated in an increasingly globalized world. Eight thematic sessions were introduced by inspiring keynotes giving European, global and methodological feeds to the dialogue over disciplinary and national borders.

The intention of the conference was to explore how the museum has dealt with the Other. How are internal and external enemies dealt with? What happens when European national museums are confronted with expectations of responding to multi-cultural processes in a globalized world? There were two main directions for our exploration:

1. What kind of political, rhetorical and practical strategies do national museums develop in order to meet such expectations?

2. To what extent is it possible to combine the concept of a national museum with a multi-cultural approach? What is the role of a European dimension versus universalised citizenship and human rights?

The responses have differed widely between European national museums, and therefore the conference focused on those differences and aimed at developing theoretical and methodological tools for describing and analyzing how national museums have dealt with globalization and the concept of the Other.
