Unfurl: A Virtual Symposium for Undertold Maritime Voices

Maritime history and culture is rich and complex; preserved and interpreted by many prominent collecting and cultural institutions across the globe. And yet, the stories of Black mariners, the changing environment, and the indigenous peoples on whose land these institutions occupy are simultaneously rich and underrepresented. These vital stories better contextualize the present day and provide avenues for additional scholarship and research into our shared maritime heritage. As one step toward telling more inclusive stories, Maine Maritime Museum has organized an online symposium as a platform for scholars to share their work on these important topics. Invited speakers investigate and give voice to these undertold maritime stories that advance our socio-political, environmental, and economic understanding of the maritime world, past and present. Presentations include: New England Native Mariners of the 18th and 19th Century: Life on the Docks Chris Newell, Director of Education, Akomawt Educational Initiative, Former Director of the Abbe Museum Coastal Foodways and African American Maritime Heritage Kim Long, Scholar in Residence for Digital and Cultural Engagement, Gibbes Museum of Art, Charleston, SC and Executive Director of The Lowcountry Rice Culture Project John Brown Russwurm (1799-1851): A Black Atlantic Leader Forged in Maine C. Patrick Burrowes, Ph.D., Historian and Retired University Administrator   This online event is FREE with a suggested minimum donation of $10. Thank you for supporting Maine Maritime Museum !
