ENYA BARBEAU
Contributing Editor
SEW WHAT 

Enya is a collections enthusiast who joined the Museum Studies program in Fall 2018. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Ottawa with a Double Major in History and Visual Arts. Her research focusses on textiles in all their variations, from fashion to fibre art. To fill that pesky existential void, she listens to true crime podcasts, reads speculative fiction, and watches period dramas. She has a cat.

Sabryna is a second year candidate in the Master of Museum Studies (MMSt) program. She has a BA in English and American Studies from the University of Toronto. Her interests include community accessibility, local histories and theatre.

butternut squash.

Previously A MUSE BOUCHE


Alexandra is a first year MMST student at the University of Toronto. Originally from Saskatoon, Alexandra completed her history degree (honors) and international studies certificate at the University of Saskatchewan.

DEFNE INCEOGLU

Contributing Editor
COLLECTIONS CORNER

Defne Inceoglu wanted to be a musician, but she gave up on her dreams to pursue grad school. She holds a BA from Brock University in the History of Art and Visual Culture and is now an MA student in Museum Studies. She works as a library assistant and as an archival assistant. Defne thinks way too much and too often about collections management, museum theory, post-humanism, phenomenology, animal rights and German expressionism. Defne also spends time running around the city, collecting people’s grocery shopping lists and playing songs on her guitar to no one in particular.


Contributing Editor
CONSERVATION TIPS & TRICKS

She recently excavated in Menorca and Pompeii, where she indulged her interests in preparing newly discovered artifacts for research and exhibition. Since her childhood, Selin loves to visit ancient ruins and imagine the stories that the sites would tell. She currently volunteers at the ROM, and previously helped out at the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library and the Museum of Inuit Art. Her hobbies include eating ice cream, reading classics, photography, and travelling.


Amelia is a first year Museum Studies student. In her undergrad, she majored in History with minors in American Studies and Political Science. As a transgender woman, she hopes to bring her unique insights on gender and identity to field of Museum Studies. Besides transgender issues, Amelia is passionate about history and loves exploring the past. She has a wide array of useless knowledge, leading her to sometimes be called a walking encyclopedia. She is rarely found without her headphones and will chew your ear off if you ask her about her taste in music.
