A Life in Museums
If you are a member of the Sacramento Anthropological Society, our student club, and you follow the SAS Facebook page, you'll already know that I am a big (BIG) fan of Emily Graslie, whose vlog series The Brain Scoop is shot on location in the Field Museum in Chicago (a fabulous, old and favorite museum of mine). I wanted to share this particular video with you because I think it will help you to appreciate the kind of sensibility it takes to work in and dedicate one's life to a museum and collection, and to see that "museum people" come to this professional milieu, almost like a "vocation" or "calling," from all kinds of educational backgrounds and majors. Watch to the end to learn how Emily found her way to the museum world.
