What Does it Mean to Be Curious? - Conversation 1: Now on Video!

Race-ing the Museum: a workshop for Pitt graduate students and faculty - Application Deadline: Feb. 19

Race-ing the Museum: a one-week workshop for faculty and grad students May 9-13, with $2,000 stipend for each participant, facilitated by Kirk Savage and Shirin Fozi (HAA). How have museums, as collections and as institutions, created, supported, or challenged constructions of race and racial identity? How are museums and their objects implicated in the history of slavery, indigenous peoples, and race relations? How have museums represented and interpreted these issues and what might they do differently?

Participants will go behind the scenes to interact with museum professionals in Pittsburgh and discuss their work and challenges. View »
