I would like to acknowledge that some of this list was put together using the resources collected at La Tanya Autry, et al, “Social Justice & Museums Resource List,” crowdsourced document, Dec 4, google doc.
Also, you might enjoy looking at the materials from the annual Museums and the Web conference here, to round out your interests.
I’m not expecting you to read all of this!! Go doublecheck coursework again if you’re not clear.
And I’ll probably add more materials.
