Introducing: Clerks of the Pinterest Boards

Posted in site information by Editor on April 23, 2013

I’m delighted to introduce two new Enfilade interns: Katrina London and Debs Wiles. For the next six months they’ll be exploring the scholarly potential of Pinterest. As Clerks of the Pinterest Boards, they’ll not only be pinning themselves but also helping us think through issue of organization and anticipating pitfalls. In fact, they’ve been working on all of this already for several weeks now. I’m thrilled at their interest and enthusiasm. Welcome aboard!

Screen shot 2013-04-22 at 10.00.44 AMI am delighted to join Enfilade as a Clerk of the Pinterest Boards. I recently earned my master’s degree in Decorative Arts, Design History, and Material Culture at the Bard Graduate Center, where I specialized in the decorative arts of eighteenth-century France. Also at the Bard Graduate Center, I was a contributor to the exhibition and catalogue Salvaging the Past: Georges Hoentschel and French Decorative Arts from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, which opened earlier this month. I currently work in the Academic Programs department at the Bard Graduate Center as a program assistant for an NEH Summer Institute directed by Professor David Jaffee, and I am considering doctoral programs in art history.

Deborah (Debs) Wiles

Debs WilesI came to horticulture as a career change. The more I learned about gardening and gardens, the more interested I became in the history of gardening. This led me to complete an MA in garden history at the University of Greenwich in London where I studied the history of Kensington Gardens and the evolution of the country house garden from the late seventeenth to early eighteenth centuries. I’ve since continued to research the biography of seventeenth-century traveler Celia Fiennes. I look forward to exploring ways to use social media as a scholarly tool!

    Welcome aboard, Katrina and Debs! I look forward to your future pins (if that is in fact the correct lingo).

    Many thanks, Michael! Yes, that is the correct lingo–I look forward to contributing many more pins and continuing to explore the scholarly potential of Pinterest!

      Thank you, Michael! And ditto what Katrina said. I think Pinterest has lots of potential for scholarly use and it’ll be exciting to explore that in the coming weeks and months.
