Virtual Event - Penn Museum


Part of the Museum Teaching & Learning Workshops Series

Description: In this workshop we will talk about ways that object-based learning can be used to promote interdisciplinary and cross-institutional learning. Using her own professional role at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in promoting object-based study, Nicole will explain ways to develop research ties at local institutions, including the PMA, and also share a small case study that reveals how this role has impacted her own art historical research.

Nicole Elizabeth Cook is currently the Program Manager for Graduate Academic Partnerships at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. In this role, she coordinates with Penn’s History of Art Department and other art history graduate programs in the region to generate opportunitiesfor graduate students and faculty to engage meaningfully with museum collections and staff members. Nicole is also a curator and art historian, and is currently researching a series of case studies of early modern women creators, addressing issues of attribution (or lack thereof) and the frequent “anonymity” of objects related to early modern women.
