Workshop: "Making Museum Professionals: Transnational Forces", online, hosted by Fordham University, USA.

Part of the AHRC-funded network ‘Making Museum Professionals, 1850-Now’, this online conference brings academics and practitioners together to consider the past, present and future of museum work, focusing on the impacts of transnational forces on shaping museum professions and professionals. Together, speakers and participants will:
- examine the transnational forces that have impacted museum professionals
- consider professionals’ mobility and networks of patronage/influence
- investigate organisations and networks for transnational training and development
- uncover mechanisms that produce movement of knowledge around the world
- ask how ‘centre’ and ‘periphery’ were and are constructed and contested
