Seminar: Can Social History Collections Be Decolonised?

Thursday 28th March, 2019

University College London



Museum Detox & the Social History Curators' Group invite you to 'Can Social History Be Decolonised?', a one-day seminar examining and exploring definitions of, approaches to, and reflections on decolonising social history collections. 

Through a combination of presentations, activities, facilitated sessions and a walk, this seminar encourages social history museum practitioners to develop and broaden their understanding of decolonising practices in the heritage sector, reflect on their own work and to consider how different approaches could be relevant to their work.

This seminar is suitable for practitioners who are interested in developing their understanding of decolonisation and its application in a social history heritage context. It is suitable for those with basic to intermediate knowledge of decolonising approaches.
