Graduate Student Representative
Hello and Welcome!
The 2012-13 Masters in Art History Program provides students with opportunities to examine historiography, practice undertaking and presenting research, investigate western style, explore Aztec ritual, and analyze the development of New Orleans' architecture. Outside the classroom, students will curate and assist with exhibitions, present research, acquire internships, handle and catalogue objects, and support their peers. I am honored to promote and partake in these endeavorsr as Graduate Student Representative this year.
As returning students have learned and new students will soon discover, your success in this program is influenced greatly by your willingness to become an active participant. I encourage you to become involved in outside activities and events. Apply for internships at local organizations, attend lectures, volunteer at our annual symposium, lead tours of Frank Gehry's Winton Guest House, submit abstracts for conferences, be present at department events, consider assistantships introduced each spring and, again, support your peers. Soon it will be your turn to present research!
If you have any questions throughout the year about opportunities or academics, please do not hesitate to contact me: email@example.com. I understand that the extensive opportunities can be overwhelming, and I would be happy to guide you towards possibilities. I had the pleasure of curating our inaugural Asmat exhibition here on campus and am currently interning at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts with several of our peers. Many of your peers will be working on projects or for institutions that you may find interesting, so please do not hesitate to inquire. The Masters in Art History Program encourages real-world experience so that we may utilize knowledge gained in and outside of the classroom in our future endeavors, and we are all willing and eager to support each other.
I look forward to getting to know new students and reconnecting with those returning. This is going to be a wonderful year!
