Museum Studies Fieldwork Seminar (Prof. Scott)
Faculty Advisor: Monique Scott
Field Site: Mutter Museum
Field Supervisor: Lowell Flanders
For the Museum Studies Fieldwork Seminar, I worked as a collections intern at the Mutter Museum. Under the supervision of collections manager Lowell Flanders, I worked mainly with the Hyrtl Skull Collection. I conducted research on the ancestry of the skulls (which I am using for my thesis), as well as photographing each of the skulls as the museum does not yet have these records. Additionally, I assisted the collections manager, curator, and other staff with everything from organization to exhibit maintenance to additional research.
