Feminist Pedagogy: Museums, Memorials and Practices of Remembrance (18-20 October 2018)

Women’s Museum Istanbul and Sabancı University Gender and Women’s Studies Excellence Center (SU Gender) invite

➢ women’s and gender museums, peace museums and memorials from all over the world working with feminist museum pedagogy and gender-sensible concepts;
➢ activists and institutions working on the history of human rights abuses in a gender-related context;
➢ museum administrators, educators, scholars dealing with the topic “visitor participation” and “creating dialogue among visitors”.

to discuss feminist pedagogical approaches developed to cultivate an alternative culture and alternative practices of remembrance.

Questions to be discussed in particular are:

• Which role does feminist pedagogy play in forming social memory?
• How can new memory practices be designed?
• How can theories, concepts and discussions developed by feminist research and the feminist movement be reflected in the field of social memory?
• What new concepts and debates can be found in this field?
• How do women and gender-oriented museums differ from other museums and places of memory? What is their contribution to cultures of remembrance?
• Which methods can be used to illustrate conflicts, collective and individual violence and war excesses in museums – especially in women’s and gender museums without reproducing images of violence?
• How is the potential of these institutions realized in practice, especially under the aspects of “visitor participation” and “creating dialogue among visitors”.
The conference languages are English and Turkish. Simultaneous translation is provided.

Parallel exhibition

The conference will be accompanied by an exhibition under the title “Remembering violent history without showing violence”- The exhibition will give concrete examples of practices of remembrance and exemplify feminist museum education. We will ask participating women and gender-oriented museums from different countries to contribute photos and texts from their previous exhibitions.

Inclusion is an ideal as well as an organizational principle for the work of the museum.
