Museum and Exhibition Work

Since graduate school, I have been interested in the ways museums contribute to public and professional knowledge about war and mass atrocity. I have published articles on Holocaust museums and participated in workshops on norms for museum professionals. More recently I joined the board of Dayton's International Peace Museum.

In October 2022, I co-organized a symposium on "Museums and Mass Violence" at Yale University, in partnership with Yale's Genocide Studies Program. This event convened museum scholars, designers, and curators to discuss the peril and potential of exhibiting difficult histories in museum settings. My co-organizers and I are currently finalizing an edited volume based on this symposium, which will be published by Routledge. 

Through my work with Dayton's Peace Museum, I became interested in the historical role              of such museums in international peace movements. My public lecture on the world's first Peace Museum, founded in 1902 in Lucerne, Switzerland, is available to watch on YouTube.

I regularly work with students, designers, and humanitarian advocacy groups on museum-related projects, including most recently exhibits on disinformation and on America's "Secret War" in Laos. I am happy to be contacted regarding potential collaborations.
