÷ Sun-Wed, 05/01/-05/04/2005 : Annual Conference of the German Museums Association :: The German Museums Association is for the first time holding its annual conference at the ZKM. Its theme, »The Next Generation of Museum Scholars - Training and Practice« reflects the debate [prompted by the reform of higher education consequent upon the Bologna Declaration of 1999] on the requirements the higher education of museum professionals must satisfy in the coming decades. From the museums' point of view, this raises the question of the criteria to be met by potential recruits. The conference begins with a general introduction to the new courses of study and qualifications in German higher education, and an inventory of the museums' complex requirements of the next generation. Given that such requirements will differ considerably, depending on the type of museum, the discussion of museum practice will be divided into three sections. What should the aspiring museum scholar expect? What are museums' requirements in terms of academic training? Does one only need »all-rounders«, or must one still insist on the »traditional« subject specialisms and degrees? For times and programme see www.museumsbund.de.
