Online Collections and Teaching Whiteness at the University of Michigan Museum of Art
The presenter will discuss his work at the University of Michigan Museum of Art where he used an online system to review underexplored aspects of the collection to generate new teaching collections and resources on themes of “whiteness” and “masculinities.” Such systems can offer chances for broader engagement with collections.
