Title: Mabel Stanley : Contributions to the community collaborative development of a museum exhibit

Abstract: This thesis provides an ethnographic description and analysis of steps and procedures involved in mounting one exhibit, Mabel Stanley: Contributions to the Community, at the University of British Columbia's Museum of Anthropology. My purpose is to provide a case study of a project explicitly based on collaboration, a term now frequently used in anthropological literature. The thesis contributes to literature on the topic of collaboration by documenting the process in a specific case, and by situating the concept historically in the anthropological literature. It examines general problems of applying the term collaboration when its meanings are based on common sense assumptions. It further examines both positive and negative aspects of a collaborative project in order to analyze the effectiveness of this type of working relationship.
