Carol McCarty is an MA student in the Cultural Heritage and Preservation Studies Program in the Department of Art History at Rutgers. Her thesis examines the articulation of the heritage value of the Rutgers Geology Museum, focusing on how and why this value has changed over time. As a Public History Fellow at the Zimmerli Art Museum, she works to expand knowledge of individual paintings in the university’s collection that are often featured in exhibitions at the museum and in campus buildings to connect these historical objects with new research on the university and New Brunswick’s connections to slavery and disenfranchisement.
