The journal Museums and Social Issues explores the dynamic role and potential of museums in addressing complex social issues. What role does writing, reading and publishing play in advancing professional work around social change? A reflective conversation between our panel and our audience will explore the status of museums in social change and the importance and challenges of building and keeping up with the literature to support and advance that work. Panel includes editors and authors.
