An Automobile, a Bloodstained Uniform, and a Couch.
An interactive set of web pages inviting students of history to think about the way displays of material objects and their interpretation reflect the specific context of a museum and the city in which it is located. The example here is the displays in the room of the Military History Museum in Vienna devoted to the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand on June 29, 1914 in Sarajevo, the event which triggered World War I. I have posted these pages, created several years ago but never previously used, on the occasion of the centenary of the event, which is attracting a great deal of attention in the news. Readers should be aware that what I recorded about the exhibits a decade ago undoubtedly has changed at least somewhat in the current mounting of the displays, even though panning around the room on the museum's current website suggests the basics are still the same.
