Megan is a PhD student in the Arts Administration, Education and Policy department with a specialization in Museum Education. Megan received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of North Texas, studying rituals associated with 18th century French Rococo porcelain as evidence of self-fashioning and performative gender and class identity. Megan is a museum educator with a strong background in museum programming, collections-based research, and interpretive design. Her practice seeks to address contemporary social justice issues through digital integration within and outside the museum space.
