Online Open Sessions
Online Open Sessions welcome college and university instructors to make a thematic selection of objects from our Collection and from our research, exhibition, publication, and public program projects in relation to the guiding questions of their course, and to lead their class around it. We consider our Collection an active resource that invites interrogation, inspection, and debate from many perspectives. Online Open Sessions increase access to our Open Sessions program by making it available virtually and internationally.
We particularly encourage proposals for Online Open Sessions from instructors teaching classes with topics related to race and social justice, environmental racism, and settler colonialism; that address geographies that include sub-Saharan Africa and South East Asia; and that originate from institutions outside of North America and Western Europe. We also welcome applications from sessional faculty.
For Fall 2020, Online Open Sessions are available Mondays through Fridays, and can last up to 1.5 hours. Typically, about fifteen objects can be included in one session, though this is dependent upon material type and condition. We will do our best to accommodate a diversity of time zones.
To request an Online Open Session, please send the following materials to email@example.com: a 200-word description of your proposed session, two or more sample objects selected through our Collection search, your preferred week for the session to take place between 2 November and 18 December, and your class syllabus.
The deadline to send a request for a 2020 Online Open Session is 16 October. Proposals will be assessed according to whether the Collection has material to substantially support the topic of the class and in relation to the criteria listed above. Notice will be sent by 22 October.
