Studenteropgave: Kandidatprojekt


The purpose of this project, i to investigate if the National Museum of Denmark contribute to social differentiation, by analysing and interpret the practice as it occurs in the exhibition rooms in the museum. Through a phenomenological and hermeneutic approach, the exhibition on “Denmark’s Prehistory” was observed and analysed by using theories developed by Basil Bernstein and Pierre Bourdieu. Their theories is applied and used to analyse the collected empiri, to illuminate the problem statement: “how does the National Museum of Denmark contribute to social differentiation, and how is that reflected through their pedagogically communicative practice?”
The collected empiri shows that the overall communicative practice at the Museum is on a certain level, which has the probability to exclude some audience and include others.
Through analysis and interpretation of the collected empiri, it is concluded that the communicative practice of National Museum of Denmark, is speaking to an audience with a certain level of lingual abilities.
