Join Dr. Julia Brock at the Cobb County Public Library on October 10th at 5 p.m. for "Conversations with the Curator." Brock, curator at the Museum of History & Holocaust Education, coordinated an online exhibit created by students from Kennesaw State University and the Ben M'sik Community Museum, Casablanca, Morocco. The exhibit, "Identities: Understanding Islam in a Cross-Cultural Context," explores the lives and experiences of Muslims in metro Atlanta and Ben M'sik neighborhood of Casablanca. Brock will explore the process of building an online exhibit, the important role of student work, and the challenges of trans-Atlantic collaboration.
Information about the exhibit: Identities: Understanding Islam in a Cross-Cultural Context explores Muslim communities in metro Atlanta and in Casablanca, Morocco, the commonalities between Moroccan and American life, as well as common stereotypes and misperceptions about Islam. A collaborative effort by student project members in Kennesaw and Casablanca, the online exhibit fulfills a grant awarded by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and the American Association of Museums.
