The Oregon Historical Society’s roots stretch deeper than most cultural heritage institutions in the Pacific Northwest. With a history of over 122 years of active collecting, it holds one of the largest archival and museum collections in the region. OHS’ legacy of acquisition and description is skewed and narrowed by its origins as a pioneer memorial association. It is incumbent on OHS leadership and staff to confront and address the various expressions of this legacy. Staff members from several departments will discuss ways they incorporate radical empathy in the work they do to address the issue.

Presenters:

  • Laura Cray, Digital Services Librarian at OHS
  • Eliza E. Canty-Jones, Editor of the Oregon Historical Quarterly and Director of Community Engagement at OHS
  • Nicole Yasuhara, Deputy Museum Director at OHS
  • Erin Brasell, Managing Editor of the Oregon Historical Quarterly and Managing Editor and Co-founder of Dear Oregon, OHS’s blog
  • Dana Miller is Collection Management Librarian at OHS
