The Tufts Museum Studies Blog is run by second-year masters students. Each year, the graduating editors pass on responsibility of the blog to a new set of editors. So, as graduation season approaches, it is time for Dominique and Andrea to say goodbye, and announce some exciting news for this coming year!
But first, we need to say THANK YOU!
This past year we had some great guest authors, good discussions, and hopefully helped connect some readers with their next job. Subscriptions rates just about doubled, and we are confident that readership will continue to grow well over the next few years! And it was all thanks to you for keeping our blog healthy and running, and sharing it with your fiends and coworkers. Thank you for sending us job postings, reading the email newsletters, spreading the word, and contributing posts!
Now for the sad goodbyes. A note from Dominique and Andrea:
This past year running the blog has been a fantastic experience. The museum community (as always!) was very friendly and supportive, and it was a joy to be a part of bringing that community even closer through this platform. This is a very welcoming space for exploring the most current museum topics and news. I am excited to see where the blog continues under the hands of the wonderful new editors! – Andrea
Thank you for letting us be a part of your weekly routine through the newsletter and blog posts! It has been a refreshing, invigorating, and rewarding experience to be able to take part in the meaningful dialogue that surrounds our museum work. I hope we left you all with a little bit of inspiration and insight through our posts. We are leaving the blog in excellent hands, and I cannot wait to see it continue to grow and reach larger audiences in the future. Thank you for all your support!! – Dominique
And now, for the BIG NEWS!
Some years this blog has been run by one editor, and other years by two editors, but this coming year there will be THREE editors! This means that there will be a student from each of Tufts’ three Museum Studies Masters programs – Art History and Museum Studies, History and Museum Studies, and Museum Education. We are very excited about how their different perspectives will broaden the voice of the blog! Stay tuned for next week when they will introduce themselves to you and begin the new year!
Thank you all for a great year!
Dominique Marcial & Andrea Woodberry
