"Art Museums and the Legacies of the Dutch Slave Trade: Curating Histories, Envisioning Futures" is presented by the Center for Netherlandish Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Harvard Art Museums, and Harvard University’s Department of History of Art and Architecture. This four-part program is organized by Sarah Mallory, Kéla Jackson, Rachel Burke, and Joanna Sheers Seidenstein. Student research informing this conference was supported by a student grant from the presidential initiative on Harvard and the Legacy of Slavery, a university-wide effort housed at the Harvard Radcliffe Institute.
