Models of International Research and Collaboration

Live Webinar
Wednesday, October 10, 2018
5- 6:00pm ET


Please note: the recording of this webinar is available for free to view on demand. 

 

 

Description

In this webinar we will discuss models and methods for museums to meaningfully pursue original research across national borders. 

How can museums meaningfully pursue original research across national borders? How can international collaborations question and expand the canonical narratives of art history? What are the practical challenges of international partnerships? This webinar seeks to address these questions through a survey of different models for international collaboration and a discussion of their different research outcomes.

The AAMC Foundation is honored to present a webinar as part of its Engagement Program for International Curators, made possible by major support from the Terra Foundation for American Art.
