Found in Collection: Mining Community Museum Collections to Inform Historical Understanding

1981.19.1.jpg

This Activehistory.ca and Halton Region Heritage Services exhibit aims to expand the historical narrative around standard community museum collection items. As museum practices have evolved, striving for a more inclusive, diverse representation of history and local stories, efforts have been made to connect singular objects to a wider historical narrative. This online exhibit and the included artifact interpretations reflects this desired shift in historical narrative.

Special thanks to all of the staff at Halton Region Heritage Services for their work on this exhibit:

Science, Technology and Gender in Canada: An ActiveHistory.ca Exhibit in Collaboration with the Canadian Science and Technology Museum

Ferut tube.png

This exhibit is intended to feature a select number of objects from the collection of the Canadian Science and Technology Museum in Ottawa, Ontario. Together, the objects displayed will highlight the intersection of the history of science and technology in Canada with women and gender. Each object will be accompanied by a brief description written by an historian. This description will draw out the theme of the exhibit by addressing how the object speaks to women's contributions in the field of science and technology, as well as conceptions of gender that inform how technology is designed, implemented and subsequently remembered.  

Special thanks to the following people at the Canadian Science and Technology Museum who made this exhibit possible:

Fiona Smith Hale, Director of Knowledge and Information Management

Gordon Perrault, Director of Conservation and Collections Services

William Knight, Curator

Pat Hilborn, Artifact Handler

Phillip Craig, Artifact Handler
