Alex Beuscher has joined WolfBrown’s Cambridge office as a researcher, writer, and editor. Her background in visual art, creative writing, anthropology, and material culture are represented in her multidisciplinary approach to research and problem solving. In conjunction with her work at WolfBrown, Alex works with the Academic Partnerships team at Harvard’s Peabody Museum to facilitate the use of collections by students and researchers, and to promote object-based learning on campus. Previously, Alex worked with the Ashmolean Museum at Oxford University, where she developed a research project to identify teaching strengths of the museum along thematic lines that can be applied across disciplines, thus creating opportunities for educational outreach to a broader academic constituency. She also has experience in arts administration, and served as an event coordinator for the Cambridge Arts Council.

Alex holds a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and Creative Writing from Connecticut College, and a Master of Arts in Decorative Art, Design History, and Material Culture from the Bard Graduate Center in Manhattan. Her master’s thesis provided an ecocritical examination of the use of the seal in Alaskan Yup’ik technology, and was awarded a Horowitz Foundation for the Arts prize. Alex is a lifelong writer and maker of visual art, and a strong believer in the potential for art-making and sharing as a promoter of individual and societal well-being.
