Race in the Museum: Representing Diversity

The Center for Renaissance Studies is hosting an online discussion of Race in the Museum: Representing the Diversity of the Early Modern World.

This discussion will interest early modern scholars working in pre-modern race studies, early modern history, public history, and museum studies.

Here is the announcement from the Center for Renaissance Studies:

CRS is pleased to announce the next conversation in the Race in Dialogue series.

This session features curators Stephanie Schrader (J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles) and Heather Hughes (Davis Museum, Wellesley College) in conversation about their own curatorial work that engages with Renaissance and Baroque materials representing people across the globe. What is the role of the curator, as both a scholar and public humanist, in the field of premodern critical race studies today? How do exhibitions today engage with different communities and audiences?

This program is a part of Race in Dialogue, a series of virtual conversations on medieval and early modern critical race studies and Indigenous studies. Each hour-long session will feature a conversation between scholars across professional generations about foundational works and the current state of the field.
