Timothy Foran PhD, Curator of British North America at the Canadian Museum of History, will speak at the public meeting of the Merrickville and District Historical Society Tuesday, April 25, 7 pm, at the Royal Canadian Legion, Main St. West, Merrickville.
The Canadian Museum of History is expanding its public engagement and outreach activities throughout the country, and fostering new collaborations and partnerships within Canada’s cultural sector.
Mr. Foran will focus his remarks on the Canadian Museum of History’s relationship with small, local museums. The area’s expertise in the national museum are vast, and can assist small institutions with a range of tasks important to understanding, preserving and displaying their collections.
His particular curatorial focus concerns the interactions between Aboriginal peoples and Euro-Canadian in the 18th and 19th centuries, and the cultural identities that emerged from those interactions.
All Merrickville and District Historical Society meetings are open to the public.
