Hi all,

My name is Jillian Povarchook; I am a graduate student in the Master of Museum Education program at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver. As a partial requirement for completing my degree, I am conducting a study of museum educators’ perceptions of liminal spaces. For the purposes of this study, liminal spaces are understood to be transitional, threshold, and “between” spaces, such as lobbies, atria, and the areas between exhibition galleries.

I am particularly interested in the ways in which museum educators perceive the possibilities of liminal spaces. To facilitate this research, I am conducting interviews with museum educators from across Canada who have been employed at their current institution for at least six months. The 45-60 minute interview will be conducted over a video-conferencing software of the participant’s choice, with a small amount of time required to review questions prior to the interview. A small amount of time may also be necessary after the interview if clarification is required during the transcription process.

It is my hope this study will provide museum educators with an opportunity to think generatively about museum spaces and to reflect and/or expand on their practice.

If you are interested in participating, please contact:
