Proseminar: Writing Around the Museum, Spring 2015 & 2016, Fall 2015 (Instructor)



This course introduces students to the full range of writing encountered while working in the museum field. Rather than being aimed narrowly at writing for an academic thesis, it opens out the role of writing in museums to all forms of written communication—proposals, reports, lectures and presentations, documentation of policies and procedures, object descriptions short and long, gallery guides, educational materials, and all forms of correspondence—for a variety of different audiences.
