I am an historian and curator of all things Australian social history. I specialise in the use of new media for interpretation and am excited to be pursuing this as a career. In 2008 I completed my MA at The University of Melbourne on how Web 2.0 is reshaping Australian public history. I worked for a consultancy company from 2005 to 2009, but moved to Museum Victoria in late 2009. I am currently an Assistant Curator working on the Royal Exhibition Building Western Forecourt Redevelopment project. As part of my role I maintain a project blog and am working towards developing other social media initiatives.
Hey Megan, thanks for joining up. Your thesis topic looks fantastic and really relevant. Hope you find this group useful and contriburte :) I think we'll learn heaps from you (and the foto's fine too!)
Thanks for the reference for my paper. I ended up using you as a main source on technology and museums. My paper came out great (I think...) and I'm awaiting my final grades. Again, thanks! Your paper was so interesting.
All the best to your internship search in the US. Like you were before you graduated (congrats!), I am currently a Masters student at University of Melbourne, reading Arts Management. It would be interesting to look at your research areas in Web 2.0 which is a pet topic of mine too. :)
