Students tell the stories of objects in "Finding Myself in the Archives"

"Finding Myself in the Archive" was developed in partnership with the Master of Museum Studies (MMSt) at the Faculty of Information, University of Toronto and six University of Toronto libraries and archives.

Fifty-four graduate students enrolled in “Exhibitions, Interpretation and Communication”, a course developed by Prof. Irina D. Mihalache, were paired with objects at each of the archives and libraries.

They were asked to write reflections on these objects, all of which had some connection with themes of migration, movement and travel, to research their history, and try to link them to the present
