Hello! My name is Adriana Dunn. I completed my Bachelor of Arts at Central Connecticut State University, with a major in Anthropology and minors in History and Archaeology. I also completed my Master of Arts at the University of Memphis in Art History and a Museum Studies Certificate.

I have practical experience in museum practices, archaeology, historical research, and teaching at an undergraduate and graduate level. I have both field and lab experience through my archaeological work in Konjuh, North Macedonia and in Dubai, UAE. I have conducted archival research and data collection and entry as a student worker for the Veterans History Project and as a graduate assistant for the Institute of Egyptian Art and Archaeology. I have museum educational experience volunteering as a docent for the Yale Peabody Museum, as the intern for the Education Department of the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, and through script writing for numerous exhibits within Ducks Unlimited Waterfowling Heritage Center. I also worked as the curator at the West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center overseeing the collections, developing exhibits and educational programs pertaining to the history and music of West Tennessee, and running an in-person and virtual internship program. Currently, I am working as the assistant director at the Art Museum of the University of Memphis.
