Lecture: Decolonizing Museum Practice in the Philippines by Dr. Ana Maria Theresa Labrador

“Decolonizing Museum Practice in the Philippines: Preventive Conservation and the National Museum of the Philippines”

by Ana Maria Theresa P. Labrador, PhD

Date: September 20, 2018, Thursday, 3:00-4:30 pm
Venue: Saunders 345
Co-Sponsors: UHM Center for Southeast Asian Studies, Center for Philippine Studies, Department of Anthropology & Museum Studies Graduate Certificate Program.

Dr. Ana Maria Theresa Labrador will give a talk on preventive conservation of artifacts in the Philippines.  Her presentation uses case studies to argue for more anthropological approaches to conservation that recognize and respect the contexts of objects, people, and place. Using ecclesiastical Church collections, and museum environments in the Philippines, she will demonstrate the interdependency of objects, people, place and time in more
holistic and conceptual conservation frameworks.

Dr. Labrador holds a PhD in Anthropology, Cambridge University, and an MA in Museum & Gallery Management, City University, London, UK. She is currently the Chief Curator & Head of Collections Management, National Museum of the Philippines.
