Decolonizing Interpretation

10:00a Pacific/1:00p Eastern (60 MINUTES)
Jane Beattie and Bill Gwaltney
Heritage interpretation has both the opportunity and an obligation to be more inclusive of culture and to question dominant and privileged cultural perspectives. What does decolonizing look like and how might each of us do in our own interpretive practices to decolonize our programs, exhibits, and spaces?

Jane works focuses on visitor experience planning, program and product design, and interpretive training and evaluation in sustainable tourism environments both in the US and abroad. Jane holds a Master of Science in Recreation Resources, Tourism, and Environmental Education from the University of Minnesota. She has published several articles in journals such as the Journal of Tourism Management and Legacy.
