“Doing Our Work in a Time of Multiple Pandemics and Cascading Crises”
We look forward to having you join us virtually on Wednesday, January 26th at 11 AM.
We are pleased to welcome our speaker Anthea M. Hartig, PhD., Elizabeth MacMillam Director, National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution.
Ms. Hartig will speak to us about the museum’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. She has put in place two task forces, one on collecting around the current crisis and the other a digital response team to create new content, particularly in the area of K-12 education. During this time, Hartig also coordinated security, facilities and other functions in cooperation with the Smithsonian leadership and other museum directors, which led to the museum’s reopening in May 2021.
