Presentation and Reception: "Introducing Peace Museums"

Presentation and Reception with Pasos Peace Museum and Joyce Apsel on her book "Giving Peace a Chance: Introducing Peace Museums." 

This presentation introduces a range of images from signs of peace to songs, art and diaries in peace museums world-wide, and discusses the development of cultures of peace. In contrast to the predominance of war and national museums, these museums are sites of alternative histories introducing vocabularies and images of peace and peacebuilding.
