DHPSNY Dialogue | Changing Interpretations

Click here to register.

The DHPSNY Antiracism Programming in 2024 is structured around both the AASLH Making History at 250 Field Guide and the New York State 250th Field Guide. Our guiding question for 2024 is: How do we make our collecting organizations interdisciplinary and representative of the realities of our many New York histories?

This program invites participants to grapple with what it means to provide relevant content, exhibits, programs, and practices as we prepare to commemorate the 250th. Specifically, this program invites participants to understand their material culture and documents in new ways that allow us to evolve our interpretations and understanding of our communities’ histories, read sources against the grain, grapple with how our sources have been read differently in different eras. The September program is designed for anyone who works in or volunteers for a library, archive, museum, historical society, or history/culture site in New York State.
