FEEDBACK SURVEY: New Year, New Ideas!

Hello everyone, and Happy New Year!

With the start of the new year, we’d like to get some feedback on how we’ve been doing as well as how we can improve in the future. We’ve created a brief, 10-question survey that asks these questions, and we’d really appreciate your feedback! The survey should only take about 10 minutes and would help us understand what we’re doing well and what you’d like to see on the blog in the coming months. Take our survey here! We’re looking forward to your responses!

As always, if you have questions, comments, jobs or events to post, or ideas for postings, please contact us at

Call for Papers

We have been made aware of an exciting opportunity – a Call for Papers from Julia Courtney, who is editing together on a book about deaccessioning. She is currently seeking abstracts for the book, which will be published in 2017. If you are interested in submitting an essay, please see the information presented below. Good luck, and happy writing!

Congratulations to all our graduates!

As the Museum Studies Program does not have its own ceremony, our masters students were spread across campus, celebrating with the Art History Department, the History Department, the Education Department, and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. Congratulations to all of the students who finished their program today and best of luck in the next steps outside of Tufts!

Additionally, congratulations to all the students who finished their first year (or even first course) at Tufts! We wish you the best for the rest of your studies!

Welcome back!

Welcome back to a new year and a new semester! Hopefully you are rested and rejuvenated from the break, if you are a student.

We would just like to take this time to ask you to think of us this semester – if you have a great idea for a post, we would love to hear it! We would also like to post any papers you wrote in previous semesters, or new ones you write for the upcoming semester. We are happy to help edit or bounce around ideas.

If  you have an idea or piece of writing to share, please email us at

Good luck this semester!

Colleen & Jess

Happy Holidays and End of the Semester!

Congratulations to all Tufts students and professors who have officially finished the Fall 2015 semester! If you are like me, you had final projects straight up until this week, and now you can finally relax with friends and family.

We would like to remind you to please keep checking back with the blog over break. We will continue posting job announcements, events, and regular posts from us and some special guest posters.

Finally, now that you might have a little extra time to mull over the work you have done this year, please keep us in mind. We would love to post some of the thoughts that you have had throughout the semester, and we are always happy to help edit or bounce ideas.

Jess and I want to wish a relaxing break to students, professors, and those of you using your precious vacation days (unless you are lucky enough to work in museums that close over the winter break!)

Safe travels and we wish you a healthy New Year.

Colleen & Jess
