About

I’m a doctoral candidate in the Screen Cultures program at Northwestern University. My dissertation examines public memory, media history and local media museums. Other research interests include urban studies, popular music and retro fashion. Professional interests include civic engagement, public history and digital humanities. In 2012, I directed exhibition research for the reopening of the Museum of Broadcast Communications in Chicago. I received my BA in English and Sociology from Temple University in 2006, and my MA from the University of Texas-Austin in 2010 in Radio-Television-Film. I keep two blogs. One, related specifically to my dissertation research can be found at http://yourmuseumspeaking.wordpress.com. The other, with more general concerns both academic, professional and otherwise can be found at http://mabelmeigs.wordpress.com.
