Contested Spaces, Contested Stories: Museums as Sites of Dialogue and Discomfort

This panel will discuss the growing movement within the profession to embrace transformative changes in interpretation, exhibitions, and programming. Rather than shy away from controversial subjects or stories, museums are deliberately seeking to confront them. Panelists from the Seward House Museum will discuss their experiences in challenging historical assumptions.
