MPM Object Spotlights

Since 1963, MPM and UW-Milwaukee (UWM) have partnered to train hundreds of UWM graduate students for museum and archival careers. 

As part of one course in their intensive two-year program taught primarily at MPM by MPM staff, these graduate students are required to research an artifact from the Anthropology or History collections. These artifacts were chosen by the MPM staff based on the students' interests and areas of academic concentration.

Below, view their recorded object spotlight presentations (all less than eight minutes) informally produced from the safety of their own homes due to COVID-19. Enjoy!
