From July 19-20, 2018, the current research team members for Museum Queeries based at the University of Winnipeg, along with project co-leaders Angela Failler and Heather Milne, Research Coordinator Lauren Bosc, and Research Associate Nicole Ritchie (York University), came together for a workshop to work through their summer research projects.

The summer Research Assistants (Thomasena Downes-Mitchell, Evan Durance, Jana Elazar, Jase Falk, Dallas Gillingham, and Thiané Diop) spoke on projects ranging from Israeli homonationalism and queer representation in Holocaust museums, to the development of a walking tour to highlight the erasure of sex work in and around the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
