Are there any questions that you’ve always wanted to ask one of the Ohio Historical Society’s curators? If so, you’ll have your chance on Wednesday, August 28th! Curators from Archaeology, Natural History, and History will be participating in an “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) session on the popular social media forum Reddit. We will be answering questions about museum collections and practices in addition to questions about the museum and Ohio’s rich cultural and natural history. reddit-alienReddit Ask Historians When is it? Wednesday, August 28, from 10 am- 12pm How does it work? After creating a user name at the Reddit site, you can submit a question on the thread. We will be actively answering questions all morning. What can I ask? You are encouraged to ask anything related to museums, collections, professional standards and training, or anything else that curators might be able to answer. Some possible questions: General: Why did you become a curator? What did you study in school? Museum Practices: Why do curators wear gloves? Why cant I take photos? Collections: What is the oldest artifact in your collection? What is the most controversial piece in your collection? Personal: What is your favorite artifact or site? Ohio History: Why is the Newark Earthworks Ohio’s official state prehistoric monument? We hope that you can participate in this special “Ask Me Anything” Reddit forum! Brad Lepper
