Constructing Cultural Contexts: Gendered Narratives

Free, registration requested

How can interpretation and teaching at the museum begin to address narratives about women that are currently missing? How can museums use their collections to talk about the intersectionality of gender with race? Join Ravon Ruffin and Amanda Figueroa, founders of Brown Girls Museum Blog, for a conversation with Christine Sciacca, Associate Curator of European Art, about the presentation of gender at the museum.

Constructing Cultural Contexts is a new lecture series that examines how museums can use their collections to address contemporary issues of race, gender, and religion. Each talk is led by an expert in the field, sometimes in conversation with a Walters curator, and highlights different themes.
