Decolonizing Museums in Practice
8 week online course begins Oct 4 on MuseumStudy.com
Articles about decolonizing museums are everywhere these days, but what does this actually mean in practice for museum professionals?
Join Laura Phillips, Heather George, and Nathan Sentance for this course where we will focus on looking critically at how museum professionals can activate decolonial ways of thinking in their own work environment, and in their day to day life. We will investigate how the words of contemporary Indigenous scholars and curators can be put into practice to promote practices that de-centre the subtle (and not so subtle) colonial ways of thinking that surround us every day. The text book can take a while to arrive so make sure to order it well in advance if you can not find it locally. This course fills early, registration is now open for the October/November course.
