Thinking through the Museum: Difficult Knowledge in Public
brings together researchers, curators, artists, and community members seeking new terms of engagement for learning from histories of violence and conflict. The project held a partnership development phase from 2015-2018, and is now working towards a new research phase.

Our project addresses the following key questions:

How can museums deepen public debate on difficult historical and cultural issues?
How can museums increase public access to knowledge?
How can museums help democratize society?
How can museums contribute to positive social change?
