A lecture “Museum Confronting Stereotypes”
What stereotypes does the Core Exhibition of POLIN Museum cope with and what stereotypes does it ignore - and why? What are the stereotypes concerning the Museum’s own activities and can aversion to Jews evoke prejudices against the institution?
What are expectations towards the Museum according to social surveys? Is the change of attitudes possible due to the Museum’s activities? We invite you to a lecture by Kama Dąbrowska, Ph.D. which will enable us to elaborate upon those questions.
Kama Dąbrowska, Ph.D. is the chief specialist in the field of training courses and methodology at POLIN Museum. She graduated from the Institute of Anthropology and Culture Ethnology of the University of Warsaw obtaining M.A. and Ph.D. titles.
Her doctor’s thesis concerned the post-war Jewish community of the Lower Silesia and Diaspora communities created by Polish Jews. For over 6 years, she has been working at the Museum of the History of Polish Jews dealing with education and training courses, as well as professional training of museum guides. She is a lecturer at the University of Warsaw.
The cycle of activities entitled "Ours-Strange-Different – the Museum Confronting Stereotypes" is realised within the framework of "The Jewish Cultural Heritage" project, component "Faces of Diversity". Supported from the Norway and EEA Grants by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.
