My name is Shira and I am in my final semester of George Mason University’s M.A. Art History Program. My area of interest is 17th century Dutch art, or art of the Dutch “Golden Age.” I also have a B.A. in English from The George Washington University, as well as an M.S. in Library and Information Science from Drexel University in Philadelphia.
This is my first blog, and I don’t generally have much a web presence outside of Facebook. In the past I have created a Twitter account to follow my organizations of interest (such as area museums) but I have not tweeted myself. I regularly use Google Reader to keep up with various blogs about local news and recipes, and have found Zotero to be invaluable in creating citations and bibliographies for research papers. I hope to learn how to utilize web tools in a more meaningful way through Clio Wired.
