My name is Christina Thompson. I am a museum professional, lifelong learner, avid theatre-goer, and curious traveler based in the Midwest. Growing up, I loved visiting museums with my family. After a professor in undergrad helped me realize museums need people to research and care for the objects in their collections, I developed an individualized major in archaeological studies by selecting courses in sociology, history, and science. I completed my Bachelor of Arts in my individualized major of archaeological studies with minors in French, Intercultural Studies, and Leadership at Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa in 2014. I continued my interdisciplinary studies as a graduate student at New York University, graduating with a Master of Arts in Humanities and Social Thought and an Advanced Certificate in Museum Studies in 2017. For several years, I worked as a museum assistant in collections at the State Historical Society and Museum of Iowa and a third-person costumed historical interpreter at Living History Farms. I currently work as an anthropology registration assistant at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. I am interested in public history, interpretation, and digital humanities, particularly technology in museums, and online collections and exhibitions.
