TAM Student and Emerging Museum Professionals Poster/Video Projects

This year we asked our students and Emerging Museum Professionals to let us know what projects they have been working on.  Instead of our usual poster sessions, these rising stars created video presentations to bring us all up to date on their research, programming and projects.
