A Proposal on the Table: Wolfsonian Public Humanities Lab

Lectures

Nightingale-Brown House

The Wolfsonian–FIU Museum on Miami Beach, which holds the largest permanent collection of material tracing the development of the modern age, has proposed the creation of a new space and academic enterprise to be called the Wolfsonian Public Humanities Lab. This new endeavor will bring together professors from across the humanities, humanities students, and the community into conversation with the extensive collection held by the museum. The goal will be to engage the community with the collection and stimulate research and the creative presentation of ideas associated with that research. The lab will continually test, dissect, and discover ideas of the past that are still very much alive and contested in the present.

Tim Rodgers is the Director of the Wolfsonian-FIU Museum. He has a PhD from Brown University ('94 in Art History) and was formerly Director of the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art.

Lunch at 11:50am.
