CHRR - The Centre for Human Rights Research
Human rights museum seminars

The University of Manitoba Centre for Human Rights Research is organizing a fall 2015 seminar series called The Idea of a Human Rights Museum, featuring University of Manitoba researchers and others from a range of disciplines. The seminars will explore topics such as: What are the missions of human rights museums around the world? What does it mean to “decolonize” a museum? How should and do museums deal with debate and dissent? How should museums deal with claims that works are stolen? What role do funders, especially governments, have in determining exhibit content? What is the message sent by museum architecture?

Law and graduate students may participate for credit but the seminars are also open to the public.

Seminars are usually on Mondays at 1 p.m. in Room 206, Robson Hall (Faculty of Law) on the Fort Garry campus. See the draft schedule.
