After a little over two years, and 734 posts, I’m stepping down as the editor of the Tufts Museum Studies Blog. I graduated with my MA in History and Museum Studies in May 2012, and have been working on a succession plan since then. I’m happy to say that the blog will be in very capable hands. There are some great big steps ahead that will change the blog for the better, so keep watching!
Phillippa Pitts, the new editor, is a graduate student in Art History and Museum Studies, with an expected graduation of May 2014. Phillippa, in addition to being a terrific person, also keeps busy as the Curatorial Intern at the Tufts University Art Gallery and as a Gallery Instructor at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She has previously worked as the Web & Social Media Producer at The Mary Baker Eddy Library and as a museum consultant with SCVNGR.
Phillippa will take over the editorship of the blog on October 1.
I will continue to contribute occasional guest posts, but will be moving on to other projects in the museum community, including my new professional blog, Amblering. You can find me on LinkedIn or Twitter if you’d like to stay in touch, and I’ll be presenting on a few panels at the NEMA Annual Conference, so email me if you’d like to be in touch there!
