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.
