LECTURE PRESENTED ON  NOVEMBER 8, 2013

Colloquium organized jointly by the research team of Montréal, Dynamic Hubspace, and the McCord Museum, was held November 7-9, 2013.

Attracting 150 participants, this unique event was designed to establish a dialogue about new research frontiers and stimulate discussions to enhance public knowledge of the Museum’s collections.
