Rae Jung Wilburn

Graduate Student
Emory University
USA

I am currently a graduate student in art history in the PhD program at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. I have lived in New York City and Washington DC and worked, respectively, in galleries and in arts policy development. I also have worked at an auction house specializing in 18th to early 20th century antiques and have done curatorial research for the New Orleans Museum of Art. My MA thesis examined museums and online culture. I am interested in how the relationship between museums and online behaviors is shaping the tradition concept of art historical information and the institutional role of the museum. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland with an honors degree in Art History.
