Student Assistants

Harriet Merrow

Tal Adler

I am one of Sharon Macdonald’s student assistants at CARMAH as well as a graduate student at the Institute of European Ethnology. At CARMAH, I support the team in organisational matters like maintaining the Reflections segment on the Centre’s website and assisting during symposia. I also help with certain tasks related to the research fellows’ projects, such as the transcription of interviews. In my studies, I am focused mostly on curatorial practices and different forms of knowledge transferal in museums, both contemporary and past-time. My background in art history as well as my work at a small Berlin-based theatre have offered me insight into cultural institutions and our socially contingent, evolving viewing practices and habits.
