Allison Meadows (BA in Art History, Truman State University, 2008; MSc in Material Anthropology and Museum Ethnology, Oxford University, 2009) returned to campus last week as a guest speaker for the Folklore Colloquium.  In addition to her talk she also presented to several classes about her research on material covered by NAGPRA (the federal Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act) and her work as a Curatorial Assistant at the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University.  Allison talked with several students about how to identify and take advantage of opportunities for training in Museum Studies, including how to choose and apply for internships and jobs, what different types of training are needed for different types of jobs, and what academic and co-curricular activities might offer to someone interested in museums as a career path.
