Collections Audiences and the Nature of the Past in the Smithsonian and the NPS
Description:
Lecture, November 2nd, 2016, National Postal Museum Drawing on research from her book, Dr. Denise Meringolo offers a critical comparison of the histories and philosophies of collecting and exhibition in the National Park Service and the Smithsonian Institution. Her talk offers a context for discussing each institution’s efforts to alter collection and display practices as part of a larger effort to re-configure its relationship with under-represented communities. Denise D. Meringolo is Associate Professor of History and Director of Public History at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. She teaches courses in community-based public history practice, material culture, and visual culture. Her book "Museums, Monuments, and National Parks: Toward a New Genealogy of Public History" (University of Massachusetts, 2012) won the 2013 National Council on Public History prize for the best book in the field.
