#NYCMERReads: Jan Book Club

Where: Poster House
119 West 23rd Street
New York, NY

When:6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

New year, new opportunities to get involved with NYCMER! Inspired by our past initiatives discussed at our 40th-anniversary party, we are bringing back our NYCMER Book Club with a twist - we aren’t reading books! We will be focusing on the articles, journals, thought pieces, spreadsheets, reports and other short-form readings that the field has been talking about.

For our January Book Club, hosted by the Student Peer Group, we will be focusing on museum education in the larger arts salary discussion with the following readings:

Morris, M. (2019, November 26). Reinventing Museum Careers. American Alliance of Museums.

Reinventing Museum Careers

Maldonado, S., Martin, C., & Song, A. (2019). A Case For Salary Transparency in Job Postings. In For Love or Money: Confronting the State of Museum Salaries (pp. 306–325). Museums, Etc.

A Case for Salary Transparency in Job Postings
