In this talk, my aim is to discuss some of my earlier work in relation to participation in museums and highlight some of the interdisciplinary challenges that working with museum participation entitles.

I will start by looking at the sociological and political definitions of participation. Then, I  try to highlight what is there to be achieved by bringing in perspectives from media studies, museology and science and technology studies in both understanding participation, but also in enacting participatory possibilities through action research.
