Webinar: Sexuality and Historic Sites

From physical intimacy, to courtship, to sex work, to changing sexual norms, incorporating the history of sexuality into museums and historic sites allows us to explore questions of societal power, create perspectives on modern sexual politics, and increase audiences. But how can organizations incorporate this topic in a way that is historically accurate and respectful, rather than simply prurient? Join the speakers in a conversation about how to do just that. Sponsored by the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities (MARCH) at Rutgers–Camden. Learn more.
