2017 AAMG Annual Conference: Call for Proposals
Why Museums Matter: The Teaching Museum Today
Thursday – Sunday, June 22-25, 2017 | University of Oregon, Eugene
Co-hosted by: Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (JSMA) and Museum of Natural and Cultural History
Deadline for Submissions: Monday, November 4, 2016
How do you define a teaching museum? What do you do at your institution that strengthens our support of faculty and students as well as our larger communities? How are you addressing college and community demographics, equity and diversity, budget issues and academic politics? AAMG seeks proposals that are representative of a cross-section of the academic field, including anthropology, art, history, science, and natural history museums, galleries, and collections. AAMG particularly encourages students and faculty to submit.
