‘Challenging Histories’ is a two day Cohort Development event led by CDP Consortium member  Oxford University Museums, and will be held at the Pitt Rivers & Ashmolean Museums along with the Museum of Natural History. ‘Challenging Histories’ aims to introduce CDP students to the role of the cultural and heritage sectors in covering histories that involve challenging or sensitive issues.  With presenters from a range of organisations, they will discuss their own experiences with the aim of encouraging student reflection upon how similar issues can impact their own work.
