Lessons from the Pop-Up Museum of Queer History

As part of Rutgers University-Camden's "Telling Untold Histories" unconference, I was invited to present a workshop on the community-engaged, political art-historical practice of the Pop-Up Museum of Queer History.

Telling Untold Histories is the first unconference in the South Jersey/Philadelphia region that will help public historians and historical organizations incorporate these stories into their work. This unconference will explore the hows and whys of engaging subjects that challenge our audiences’ expectations and expand their thinking. By drawing a diverse group of public historians, scholars, students, and interested members of the general public together, this unconference will be an open forum to discuss the challenges and opportunities of doing difficult history, will give participants a chance to network with like-minded practitioners from across the region, and will teach professional skills through workshops. We hope that attendees will leave inspired and full of ideas.
