Public programs facilitate dialogue between academics and professionals, informing scholarship and strengthening practice.

Multiple day conferences, year-long colloquia, individual lectures, “conversations” between individuals, hands-on workshops, and Museums at Noon talks featuring our graduate students all contribute to the remarkable richness of MSP offerings.

Video recordings of some MSP lectures are archived for viewing in our Media Gallery.

What’s the Object of this Museum? Everyday Resistance at the National Public Housing Museum

March 8, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Please join us for a presentation by this year’s Museum Studies Program visiting scholar, Lisa Yun Lee, Executive Director, National Public Housing Museum (Chicago)

Worker cooperatives to build a solidarity economy, contemporary art that grapples with history and unleashes radical imaginations about our collective futures, everyday objects and labels written by public housing residents, cultural work that contributes to more just public policies and reparations, collective joy and civic love.  Learn about the work of the National Public Housing Museum and how a cultural institution contributes to the ongoing struggle for housing as a human right.
