Friends, since last we spoke I packed everything I owned, drove across most of the country with a yowling cat companion, and arrived safely in the Bay Area, where I am now a curator at the Oakland Museum of California. My remit is “contemporary history,” and I am excited to think through what it means for museums to be places that collect, exhibit and facilitate the contemporary. I’m also delighted to be at a multidisciplinary museum and one with an exemplary commitment to visitor voices and new ways of doing museum work. New horizons, indeed–I may even start blogging regularly again.
