Aurora, Maeghan, Julia, & Jessica presented at the Folklore Studies Association of Canada Conference at Congress 2017 in Toronto last weekend! Organized by Professor Irina Mihalache, the students each delivered a 10-minute presentation on their interpretation processes from a project completed in the Exhibitions, Interpretation, Communication module, which was partnered with the Toronto Ward Museum. Each student was paired with an object from the University of Toronto Archive...s to share a story of migration. After the presentations, Professor Mihalache led a discussion period where the audience could ask questions about the presented objects. This opportunity helped further develop research skills and strategies, provided a platform to practice sharing interpretive processes, and allowed students to discuss how challenges were overcome with other practicing professionals. After their panel, the group was able to attend and engage in other discussions and presentations with museum professionals and academics. What a great professional development opportunity! Feel free to reach out to Aurora, Maeghan, Julia or Lucy (Jessica) to ask about their experience!
