    This webinar aims to provide its audience with both the logistical information needed to apply for a Preservation Assistance Grant and a deeper understanding of how these grants can impact their work. We hope webinar participants will leave the webinar feeling more confident about the grant application process and inspired to apply. Join Margaret Walker, Program Officer, Division of Preservation and Access at the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and Caitlin Emery Avenia, Curatorial Director at Old Strubridge Village and past Project Director for several PA grants, as they present an introductory webinar about applying for and executing an NEH Preservation Assistance Grant.

    Preservation Assistance Grants help small and mid-sized institutions—such as libraries, museums, historical societies, archival repositories, cultural organizations, town and county records offices, and colleges and universities—improve their ability to preserve and care for their significant humanities collections. These may include special collections of books and journals, archives and manuscripts, prints and photographs, moving images, sound recordings, architectural and cartographic records, decorative and fine art objects, textiles, archaeological and ethnographic artifacts, furniture, historical objects, and digital materials.

Ms. Avenia received her B.A. in Cultural and Historic Preservation from Salve Regina University, and her M.A. from the Winterthur Program in American Material Culture at the University of Delaware. She has lectured on American interior design and the early work of McKim, Mead & White for the Decorative Arts Trust, Historic Deerfield, Richard H.

    Deconstructing "Safe Space" is an AASLH Continuing Education recorded webinar. This webinar is about taking a critical look at "safe space" as a buzzword and its implications on interpretation. This event is presented by Maggie Schmidt and was part of the 2016 Online Conference. The concept of “safe space” is often summoned as historical institutions approach challenging topics on race, politics, and identity. But what does “safety” actually look or feel like? Should institutions create experiences in which visitors feel unsafe? We’ll take a critical look at this buzzword and its implications on interpretation.
