Betty Schlothan Chosen for Museology Workshop on the Reformation

In October 2017, doctoral student Betty Schlothan will be participating in a museology workshop organized by the Friedrich-Alexander-Universit├Ąt Erlangen-Nuremberg that addresses the topic of "Reform and Reformation: New Approaches to Luther 2017". Besides considering questions as to the significance of the Reformation in today's political, cultural and religious discourses, participants in the workshop will closely examine the conceptualization, planning, creation of displays, and marketing, of museum exhibitions through lectures, discussions with museum professionals, and visits to exhibitions in Nuremberg, Eisenach, Wittenberg, Berlin and Coburg. The exhibitions celebrate the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther and the Reformation.
