Curating Scholarship: A Workshop on the Visual Presentation of Research

Curating  Scholarship: A Workshop on the Visual Presentation of Research

For U-M Faculty and Graduate Students
Dec 10 & 11, 2021

Visual exhibitions of research have the potential to engage publics beyond the readers of a scholarly monograph. Moving research off the page can take a variety of forms, but always requires careful curation. In this two-day workshop, graduate student and faculty scholars will gain an understanding of the requirements of curation, of the relationship between curation and creation, and of the research potentials opened through collaboration. Each selected participant will receive $250 in compensation for their time in attending the workshop.

Curating Scholarship will be led by Institute for the Humanities Curator Amanda Krugliak, who will address conceptual questions of importance such as visual choices, context, display, and organizational styles. Logistical factors to be covered include planning, strategies, collaborative possibilities, and generating interest and support. Four guest presenters will discuss their experience translating research into exhibition format.

Application and email of endorsement are due November 22, 2021. Click here for more information.
