Collecting Knowledge: New Dialogues on McCord Museum Collections – Session 8

LECTURE PRESENTED ON  NOVEMBER 9, 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. The colloquium was also an opportunity to present recent research findings that have made innovative use of the McCord Museum’s historical collections, one of Canada’s largest sources of documents and artefacts for historical research.

The meeting presented a wealth of information and generated a great deal of interest, proof of the importance of encouraging exchanges between researchers and curators.
