We know how difficult it can be to keep up with current museum literature during your busy everyday life, particularly if you no longer have a syllabus to guide you. Our goal is to provide our readership with up-to-date information about a wide variety of topics that people actually find useful.
Each week, we put out a call to you for suggestions of items worth reading, such as:
- news articles
- blog posts
- journal articles
If you come across something relevant, please submit it to us (along with a few short sentences about why you think it is particularly helpful) at email@example.com. We will post your suggestions as they come in, as well as adding them to our permanent What We’re Reading page.
So, please keep your eyes peeled and keep us in mind when you find something interesting!
Just as a reminder, the What We’re Reading page also compiles some helpful blogs that are worth checking regularly.
Join a special tour at Tufts’ Art Gallery Thursday, April 14th, 5 – 6:30, related to interpreting violent histories. The current exhibition includes artwork by Marcelo Brodsky and Jorge Tacla addressing the legacy of violence in Argentina and Chile, in particular, and the tour will also include commentary by the Gallery’s Liz Cantor and Noe Montez, in Tufts’ Theater program. Dr. Montez’s new work is focused on survivor-tour guides at former torture sites in Argentina. He is exploring how traumatic history is performed for visitors, and he and Liz have devised a way to weave those issues into the exhibition tour.
If you’re interested, please send an RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
