Active History Museum Theme

Active History Museum Theme week

This week Carly Ciufo and I launched the ActiveHistory.ca museum theme week.  This week was designed to encourage conversation between museum professionals and historians, while highlighting the labour of museum professionals.

It was a pleasure to work with Carly as a co-editor and we are both very please with how the week turned out. A huge thank you to all of our fantastic contributors.

The week’s posts included:

I love that this week covered such a diverse range of topics – museum labour, curation, exhibition development, community partnership, decolonizing practices, and education programming. I also think a number of these posts have the potential to be really useful for folks who are teaching introduction to museum studies courses or public history classes focused on museum work.
