Meghan Hipple

Meghan is a junior majoring in the History of Art and Architecture and minoring in Museum Studies. Currently, she is a research assistant with the Visual Media Workshop where she is in the process of researching and mapping the movements of European women who travelled on The Grand Tour during the eighteenth-century. Her research is only a small part of a much larger project that digitally maps the locations, paths and overlaps of European Grand Tourists. She is also the curatorial intern at The Andy Warhol Museum, working alongside the Assistant Curator, Jessica Beck to research artists and their work for different temporary exhibitions. Over the past summer she received the Brackenridge Fellowship to research visual representations of the human body in architectural treatises that operated as tools for the formation of architectural knowledge throughout the disciplines history. Meghan assisted with the curation of the exhibition Configuring Disciplines: Fragments of an Encyclopedia, where her Brackenridge research was displayed alongside that of other HAA undergraduate and graduate students. She plans to pursue a senior thesis combining her background in the HAA department with film studies and visual culture studies that will look at the HBO anthology series True Detective. Utilizing theories already developed in film studies on the subjects of migration, landscape and identity in the dissemination of transnational film, she will work to create a structure for analyzing the meaning of gender, space and landscape in evolving American genres and television.

Meghan will be at the Visual Media Workshop table at HAAARCH 2015.
