Research Themes

Themes

The RCMC organizes an annual program of events for scholars and the general public around several broad research themes.

Research Themes

From 2017 to 2020, we will be focusing on five themes that will anchor further research and programming development. These themes inform the ways we seek to engage with the historical and contemporary meanings of the NMVW collections, the national and global histories of which they are a part, and the questions around issues of heritage, cultural identity and belonging they raise.

Our previous concerns with alternative histories, collections ethics and responsibility, materiality, re/presentation and digitality continue, now taken up within topics that do not only open up our collections in new ways, but also contribute to public discourses on contemporary issues such as climate change, gender, migration, social justice, and global culture.
