Sailor Souvenirs: Cultural Appropriation Across the Oceans

Tuesday, June 16, 2020,

On this page, The Lantern, and our Facebook page.

Sarah Timm, Manager of Interpretation at the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath, Maine, discusses objects from MMM’s collection that were collected by Maine captains and crews during their stops in ports around the world, as many objects transformed in meaning and function once they came back to America.

This talk is presented in conjunction with the Colby Museum exhibition Hew Locke: Here’s the Thing. The exhibition focuses on maritime vectors of mercantilism, colonialism, post-colonialism, migration, and diaspora.
