The Dawson City Museum Project: A Community Engaged Research Project
The Dawson City Museum Project is a collaboration between the Dawson City Museum and Robin Nelson to document the Museum’s history in relation to government policy and community action. There are gaps in our understanding of community museums, their needs, and relationships to both government and community in what is now known as Canada. The Project aims to address these gaps thanks to support from MacEwan University’s Community Engaged Scholarship Grant, Teaching Impact Fund, and Ripen Level Up.
The Project involves document analysis and archival research on the Museum, community, and government policy. Current and former museum employees and volunteers are also being interviewed.
In 2023, we will release a podcast miniseries on the Museum and its history! There will also be updates posted as blog posts on an ongoing basis, academic articles, and a final report for the Museum.
If you have any questions or would like to participate in the research, please contact Robin at email@example.com.
