Nancy Netzer (Director, McMullen Museum) for the Museum Current lecture series

McMullen Museum is dedicated to providing resources and training to Boston College students from all disciplines interested in work in museums, either as a professional or as a volunteer, board member or trustee. The Museum Current lecture series will provide an opportunity for the McMullen Museum in consultation with faculty from across the University to invite three leading museum-scholars and innovators to Boston College. The aims are to present students, faculty, and staff with a chance to:

  • directly converse and network with outstanding leaders in today’s expanding museums industry,
  • explore new research areas, developments, and career opportunities in museums,
  • gain understanding of relevant leadership skills, museum best practices, and ethics standards necessary to succeed in a broad array of museum careers, and
  • learn first-hand about the complex ethical issues that face museums operating for the public good of our society.
