Local Tours Sought
MMA invites Greater Lansing cultural organizations to host focused tours for MMA members and conference participants on the afternoon of Wednesday, October 18. Engaging, “one of a kind” opportunities are welcomed and encouraged, since the MMA audience understands and appreciates the efforts required to develop such experiences.
Call for Session Proposals
The Call for Session Proposals is now closed. Submissions will be reviewed and selected by April 1.
We will be looking for proposals for Conversation Stations later this winter/early spring.
Call for Student Papers
MMA is now accepting student paper proposals for the 2017 Annual Conference. MMA strives to support students as future museum leaders. The student paper session offers students the opportunity to share their research, class projects, and field experiences. Student papers will be presented on Wednesday, October 18. Submissions are due March 13, 2017.
We invite proposals for papers on any topic within the field of museums although preference may be given to those that fit the conference theme, Sharing Our Stories: The Role of MI Museums.
Participants in the student paper session must be enrolled in a museum studies, public history, historic preservation, or related program. Proposals will also be accepted from recent graduates who graduated within the last 6 months. Students may present individually or as part of a group of up to three presenters; a total of three submissions will be selected for the session. MMA seeks to showcase students from programs across the state—both undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to apply. Students are strongly encouraged to work with their program faculty to shape a successful proposal.
