Kathleen Isabel Stringer
I have worked for over thirty years in the GLAM sector as both an archivist and museum curator.
I have a passion for history and for sharing my knowledge with others.
Having completed my MA, where I looked at social aid I am now working on my doctorate, fun times!
Presently I am involved with assisting schools in formulating and developing their Aotearoa Histories curriculum. I give value by assisting them recognize both their unique local story as well as how their community connects with Aotearoa’s wider narrative. Recently, I have been working with schools in preparing their new history curriculum .
I enjoy encouraging people to express history in exciting, novel ways, I myself am involved in both steampunk and Victorian history activities, This also allows me to interact with my other passion – costume.
