The Tropical Museum organized a meeting entitled “Words Matter” about the use of contested or sensitive words in museum texts, such as for example slave or Eskimo. For our museum it is especially important to use the correct indications in our online database. That is why Benedict Goes participated in this study day for professionals. Perhaps the sensitivity of our time goes a bit too far, so you hardly know what you can and cannot use. In any case, we will adjust some terms in our presentations in the coming weeks without affecting the search function of the website.
