Maya R. Hirschman

Supervisor: Cara Krmpotich

Maya Hirschman has been working in museums and galleries, large and small for almost 25 years and as a curator since 2006. Her interests are wide-ranging (settlement and immigration to Upper Canada, Indigenous-Colonial relationships and cultural appropriation/transfer, depictions of mental illness and hygiene, Second World War and Cold War radar history), but always with an emphasis on identity, memory, narrative and interpretation. She has come to the iSchool in order to explore intersections of practice and theory in community museums, memory, and history.
