2. Exhibitions 


Grant co-applicant Dr. Monica Patterson has curated several exhibits based on her research. From April 15-16, 2016, Dr. Patterson led a two day workshop on Decolonizing Curatorial Pedagogies, organized and hosted by Thinking through the Museum project team. The “Thinking through the Museum: Difficult Knowledge in Public” is a SSHRC-funded Partnership Development project which brings together researchers, curators, artists, and community members seeking new terms of engagement for learning from histories of violence and conflict. 

Grant collaborators Rana Abughannam, Pallavi Swaranjali, and  Émélie Desrochers-Turgeon have been involved in multiple exhibitions. Over the past decade, the grant collaborators have taken multiple roles with various exhibitions in Canada and abroad. They have been involved in curating and designing exhibitions, writing the text for exhibitions, production of technical drawings for fabrication, and supporting the post-event documentation.
