TAM 2023 Academic Showcase

For the TAM 2023 Annual Meeting in San Antonio, the Texas Association of Museums will host our inaugural Academic Project Showcase and Competition. The showcase will provide an opportunity for students to share their research contributions to the museum field. Submissions will be included in the TAM 2023 Annual Meeting and judged by seasoned museum professionals. The three highest-ranked Academic Projects will receive a TAM award and be included in a combined session at the face-to-face conference to be held April 23-26, 2023 in San Antonio, TX. Similar to a poster session, students will submit short abstracts and support materials. Regular conference attendees are invited to view and comment on the presentations to provide important feedback and dialogue with the presenters. Proposals from TAM student members in all colleges and campuses are welcome. Conference organizers are committed to organizing a diverse Academic Project Showcase that is reflective of the various TAM members and the communities they serve - submissions from women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, and veterans are highly encouraged. Winners will receive recognition at the Annual Meeting, on the TAM Newsletter, and on the TAM website.
