James Seaver at the National Gallery of Art
Congratulations go to IU Department of History doctoral student James Seaver, who has just been awarded a nine-week summer internship in the Curatorial Records and Files Division of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. Along with sophisticated general training and experience in museum work, Jim will have an opportunity to focus on World War II provenance issues in a museum context. This theme relates to his wider interesta in the circulation of material culture in times of war and in the contemporary significance of World War II associated objects. A Ph.D. minor in Folklore and Ethnomusicology, Jim participated during 2007 in the Curatorship and Theories of Material Culture graduate seminars.
