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 that school'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 

working to produce an edited volume based on this symposium.

                                                           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 on museum-related projects,                                                               and am happy to be contacted with news on museum work.
