9/11 Museum and Memorial Chief Conservator Lisa Conte explores the history of collecting at the Museum (beginning with how the collection was formed via rapid-response collecting in 2001), how lived experience can shape how preservation decisions are made, and offers some perspective on navigating hazards as a part of preserving traumatic heritage. Conte will use several objects in the collection, and the Museum’s approaches to their preservation, to tell a people-centric story of 9/11 and its consequences.

This event is presented in partnership with the College of Arts and Sciences as part of the Fairfield University 9/11 20th Anniversary Programs, and is part of the Edwin L. Weisl, Jr. Lectureships in Art History, funded by the Robert Lehman Foundation.
