GEMM at AAM 2019
In May, GEMM Steering Committee member Heidi Lung represented GEMM at the 2019 American Alliance of Museums annual conference in NOLA. She presented a brief overview of GEMM initiatives to museum studies faculty during the leadership planning session for the Museum Studies Network (MSN), a professional network of AAM. MSN, formerly known as the Committee for Museum Professional Training (COMPT), recently refocused its mission to bridge the field and academic museums studies programs. Lung introduced the white paper “Museums as a Pink Collar Profession” to both students and faculty attending the MSN Networking Luncheon and during the Museum Studies Program Fair event held in the MuseumExpo.
