We invite colleagues, students, and members of the community to join us in celebrating Ray Silverman’s retirement from his position as Professor of History of Art, African Studies, and Museum Studies with a two-day symposium at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Inspired by Dr. Silverman’s seminal volume, Museums as Process: Translating Local and Global Knowledges (Routledge 2014), the symposium invites discussion about methodologies, challenges, and benefits of undertaking scholarship, museum work, and creative production through collaboration and community engagement. We ask, what does it mean for the process of collaboration to be an end in itself, and how might this perspective shift values in the academy and beyond?

The program will begin on the afternoon of Friday, September 30 and end late-afternoon on Saturday, October 1, 2022. It will be an in-person event taking place in the Helmut Stern Auditorium at the U-M Museum of Art (UMMA).
