Augusta Museum of History Presents
Brown Bag History Lecture – November 8, 2023
21st Century Examples from the Museum’s Collections
Alena Rensch, Augusta Museum of History Registrar, is responsible for collections on exhibition and in storage. She will be the tenth guest speaker for the AMH’s Brown Bag History Lecture Series on 21st Century Turning Points. The program will be on Wednesday, November 8, 2023, at 12:30 p.m. Her lecture on the Museum’s acquisitions in the first two decades of the 21st Century is not one to be missed.
Ms.Rensch is a native of Grovetown and was first introduced to AMH during an elementary field trip. After volunteering in the collections as a high school student, Alena returned to the Museum as the Fitz-Symms Collections Intern after graduating from Georgia State College and University with a degree in History. Since joining the staff in 2020, Alena has pursued a Masters from Kennesaw State University, graduating in 2023. During her tenure at the Museum, she was first promoted to Collections Assistant and now to Registrar. 
The Museum is hosting the program in-person in the History Theater on the second floor. The recorded session will be available via the Museum’s Facebook page and YouTube channel later in the week.
Attendees are welcome to arrive at 12:00 PM for the lecture in the theater. The talk will begin at 12:30 PM followed by a brief Q & A. The program is free to members and $5 for non-members.
2023 Brown Bag History Lecture Series
The dictionary defines a turning point as “the point at which a very significant change occurs; a decisive moment.” Sometimes a turning point in history has immediate repercussions, making its significance obvious to people at the time; sometimes, the impact of an event or decision or person is clear only in retrospect.
The 2023 Brown Bag History Lecture Series examines some of the significant changes that have impacted the Augusta River Region during the first two decades of this century. 
Follow the Museum on Facebook and Instagram for updates on upcoming programs. Additional information on future presentation topics is also available on the Museum’s website.
