Museums in Perilous Times

Thursday November 26, 2020

Robert R. Janes
Founder and Co-Chair
Coalition of Museums for Climate Justice

Robert R. Janes is an independent scholar-practitioner, the Editor-in-Chief Emeritus of Museum Management and Curatorship, a Visiting Research Fellow at the School of Museum Studies (University of Leicester, UK). “The museum community has yet to have a forthright conversation about the climate crisis, including the role and responsibilities of museums in addressing it. In addition to their deep view of time, museums are eminently qualified to address the climate crisis for reasons that will be discussed. I will also assess the combined threat of the climate crisis and the COVID Pandemic, examine the inertia that hinders the museum community as a force for good, and suggest ways that members of the museum community can activate their personal and organization agency. Museum practitioners, academics, and students now have an unprecedented opportunity to mobilize museums as key civic and intellectual resources to take action in this deepening crisis.”
