I’m Jen, and I am the main organiser for Muse From Nowhere. I work at the University of Aberdeen as a Lecturer and Curatorial Fellow in Museum Studies, where I teach courses on Museums and the Digital World, and lead the dissertation option. I also like researching the connections between museums and other cultural performances, and am a documentation nerd.
