For the Museum Job Hunter
Museum Studies at Tufts University
by Madeline G. Smith
1w ago
Job hunting in the museum world can be tricky. Most of us are well aware that the field is competitive. Luckily we’ve spoken to a few recent graduates to get their tips and tricks for the job search. Know where to look and start looking early. While in the second year of your program, graduation may seem a long way off. Many museums, especially government museums and historic sites, have a rather slow hiring process. Generally, the larger the museum, the longer the process. I recommend starting to look for jobs in January or February. The blog’s Job Roundup is a great resource, but be aware ..read more

What I am Taking to the Classroom
Museum Studies at Tufts University

Hello dear readers,    I have something to admit. Starting this fall I will be a traitor and am going back into classroom teaching.    This is hardly a shocker to anyone who knows me – I came to this program after working with 6th graders for a year and somehow had fun. (I know, I’m a weirdo)  I have loved teaching since I was little, and have always been interested in having my own classroom. Ms. Harrison will be back in action and teaching English.    You may be wondering – have the last two years been a waste?    Absolutely not. This program has ..read more

What’s With the Hidden Native American Exhibits?
Museum Studies at Tufts University
by Madeline G. Smith
2M ago
Recently several major museums have taken the significant step of removing Native American cultural items from display. The American Museum of Natural History, the Field Museum, and Harvard’s Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology are a few of the big names acting [1]. It may seem sudden, but the situation has been years in the making. Museums are covering certain exhibits of Indigenous belongings in response to the new regulations for the Native American Graves Protection & Repatriation Act (NAGPRA). The new regulations, which were published in December, are not without their controv ..read more

Channeling My Climate Anxiety Into My Coursework
Museum Studies at Tufts University
by Lauryn Weigold
2M ago
With 60 degree days in February in Boston, trees budding early, and a general sense of impending climate disaster making itself more felt with every passing day, I have started to enter the climate anxiety or eco-anxiety zone. Sarah Lowe, a clinical psychologist and Associate Professor at Yale, defines climate anxiety as “distress about climate change and its impacts on the landscape and human existence”1, and Anthony Leiserowitz, the founder and Director of the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication and Senior Research Scientist at Yale School of the Environment, says that 27% of Americ ..read more

How Historical Costuming Changed My View of History
Museum Studies at Tufts University
by Ellie Harrison
3M ago
Sometime in early 2020, I came across a video that changed how I approach history. In this video, costumer Bernadette Banner was constructing an Edwardian walking skirt to wear around her native NYC. While at the time I had no idea what a bias was, center seams, or really any idea how to sew beyond simple embroidery, I found myself drawn to this world of history as she narrated. Not only was she showing her reference patterns, she explained how women would wear these long garments, as well as how to read clothing for the history and culture of the time. There was so much to learn about the tex ..read more
