  • 1.  Maritime Museum Study

    Posted 4 days ago

    Hello all,

    A graduate student I supervise it conducting a study with folks who work in Maritime Museums. See below for more information:

    My name is Gavin Schrantz and I'm currently pursuing a masters degree in museum studies at the University of Florida. I'm reaching out because my thesis (in-progress) is centered around the handling of difficult history within maritime museums, and I've created a brief survey to gauge the professional opinions of those working for maritime museums on this topic. If you are an employee at a maritime museum I would love to hear your thoughts on the current and future state of difficult history interpretation within these institutions! 

    To participate in the survey, please click this link:

    If you have any questions, you can reach Gavin at:

    Thank you for your consideration.
