First off, if you haven’t subscribed to our weekly newsletter, subscribe here! Our first newsletter went out last Sunday, so subscribe now so you don’t miss the next one!
While this time of year can be busy, we would love to feature more guest posters here on the Tufts Museum Studies Blog! Students, you can even submit papers and assignments you have written to the blog. We love to know what’s going on in your classes, and we can help edit if you need it!
Although the blog is student-centered and student-run, it is not solely for current students. Anyone can submit a blog post! Our goal is to create and support a community of museum professionals while showcasing interesting museum news and engaging in conversation. We will frequently post reviews and questions, and would love to hear your thoughts! We’re always looking for new blog authors and assistant editors, and welcome submissions of any kind. Here are a few ideas for post topics:
- Exhibition reviews
- Museum reviews
- Short essays on upcoming topics
- Short introductions to new blogs or other online sources of information
- Event announcements
- Internship overviews and reports
- Other topics that interest you. We are open to suggestions!
If you have a suggestion, comment, or want to contribute to the blog, send us a message using the “Contact Us” widget at the bottom of your browser’s page. This is your space too!

On Wednesday, September 28 from 12-1 pm, our very own Cynthia Robinson will be conducting a webinar with NEMA titled Write to Publish:
“Writing a blog entry or composing an article for a newsletter or journal are mental operations that yield insights and wisdom; self-development requiring reflection, analysis and synthesis. It is also an exercise in communicating with others, and forces you to consider what your readers know and care about.
Learn about voice, structural components, and formats. We’ll discuss developing ideas, determining the right venue for your work, following appropriate guidelines, and promoting your work.”
So pack your lunch and bring your questions! To register, click here.
