At the 2014 Conference in Toronto, Margery Towery gave us one of her best indexing tips: plug yourself into the subject. If you index in the Humanities, or hope to start, you cannot get more plugged in to the human condition than by exploring the world’s story of human rights.
You will have your best opportunity when you come to Winnipeg for the conference June 8-9.
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is the only museum in the world that explores human rights as a topic and an aspiration. The stories and interactive displays cover human rights through the ages and up to current times with a uniquely Canadian lens. The building’s stunning architecture gives you space to reflect on what you learn. And the stories of triumph will leave you inspired.
The museum is open from 10 am to 5 pm every day except Mondays, and stays open to 9 pm on Wednesdays.
Before you book your trip, consider making room in your travel plans to spend three to six hours at the CMHR.
