Title: Thinking Through the Museum


Description: This project considers difficult knowledge in public spaces that represent history such as museums, memorial sites, and cultural heritage tours. It focuses on how the rise in consciousness of key episodes of difficult history in Canada — such as the colonial legacy of Indian Residential Schools — is shaping the expectations and practices of Canada’s national museums. The project brings together scholars, curators, museum practitioners, and diverse publics to collaborate on best approaches to acknowledge multiple and disparate voices given that in diverse societies individuals and groups are situated differently and unevenly in relation to difficult knowledge.
