Event Details

Thanks to the Leverhulme Trust-funded international research network on Feminism and Curating, the Smithsonian is hosting a research symposium 23-24 September 2011 to probe some of the deep ethical questions about technology and museum practice:

 *   What’s new about “new media”? It is truly transformative, or just another modernist trope of “innovation”?
 *   Is technology really “broadening access” to museums, or just adding more and new faces to the existing structures of power?
 *   Can technology play a more critical role in the museum, enabling encounters and counter-narratives that “difference the canon” as Griselda Pollock has called it?

Attendance is free and open to all.

Friday 23 September, 10am-5:30pm

Saturday 24 September, 10am-5pm

 



The symposium will be preceded on Thu 22 Sept by an evening event from The Smithsonian Associates:
