Based at Curating and Public Scholarship Lab (CaPSL), Thinking Through the Museum (TTTM) is a 7-year research network supported by a $2.5 million dollar Partnership Grant from the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
TTTM brings together international scholars, students, museum professionals, and community representatives from 20 museums, universities, and NGOs in Canada, the Netherlands, Poland, South Africa, and the USA to work in five thematic research groups that amplify perspectives under-represented in the museum world: Critical Race Museology, Museum Queeries, Unsettling and Indigenizing Museology, National Heritage and Traumatic Memory, and Children’s Museology.

Established in 2016 at Concordia University in Montreal, the Curating and Public Scholarship Lab (CaPSL) is a hub where faculty, students, and community and museum partners translate academic scholarship into on-site and mobile exhibitions that respond to critical social issues.
CaPSL began its life in 2008 as the Centre for Ethnographic Research and Exhibition in the Aftermath of Violence (CEREV). CEREV’s community of scholars and exhibition projects remain a key “spoke” in our broader intellectual and creative community. As such, exhibiting difficult histories — legacies of colonialism, genocide, slavery, and human rights abuses — remains a central focus of research in the lab.
