Challenging Social History: Navigating difficulties and caring for contested collections

The museum sector continues to face great challenges in 2020. We are looking again at our collections to find hidden histories traditionally left out by past narratives. We increasingly turn to partnership working to enhance our knowledge, open up collections and access essential funding.

Our next annual conference will focus on the theme of challenging social history in museums and how to navigate, curate and interpret difficulties in social history collections.

We would like to receive proposals of activities, round table discussions, papers, presentations, and workshops.
