1. Reed, Aubrie Yvonne. A Study of School Group Social Interaction at the History Colorado Center.

Degree: MS, Museum and Field Studies, 2015, University of Colorado

This paper presents the results of an observational study focused on the social interactions occurring in school groups participating in the Colorado Time Travelers Program, a guided-program for elementary school age children at the History Colorado Center in Denver, Colorado. This study seeks to identify, describe, and categorize the social patterns that occur between the various members of the guided program which include the school program facilitator, the students, the chaperones, and the classroom teachers. The purpose of this study is to help the History Colorado Center better understand the social nature of their school programs and to act as a preliminary step toward evaluating the success of their school programs. The results of this study will also provide education staff at the History Colorado Center with a set of behavioral codes that can be used in future studies or evaluations of their school group programming. Likewise, this study aims to contribute to the field of museum education by adding to knowledge concerned with the role social interaction plays in museum school group programming. Advisors/Committee Members: James Hakala, Jen Shannon, Susan Jurow, John O'Malley.

2. Rieger, Ivy Alana. Where the Clouds Descend: Fiestas and the Practice of Belonging in San Juan Mixtepec, Oaxaca, Mexico.

Degree: PhD, Anthropology, 2015, University of Colorado

This dissertation examines the relationship between a cycle of fiestas, practice, and belonging in a Mixtec community located in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca, Mexico known as San Juan Mixtepec, also known in the Mixtec language as Yoso nu Viko or “Place Where the Clouds Descend.” Residents of San Juan Mixtepec, hereafter referred to as Mixtepequenses, actively maintain a cycle of fiestas that celebrate particular saints, virgins, and Mixtec cosmological beliefs through the practice of a variable series of rituals, processions, and performances. San Juan Mixtepec is one of the only Mixtec communities in the Mixtec region that continues a complete cycle of fiestas, which are managed by the mayordomía, an institution of community volunteers who are responsible for performing religious fiestas associated with Catholic figures, and municipal authorities, who organize secular celebrations. This dissertation is grounded in anthropological theories of practice, and the fiestas of San Juan Mixtepec are examined as dynamic practices within which Mixtepequenses imagine, challenge, and maintain social, cultural and political discourses that help them define what it means to belong. Given this theoretical orientation, it is the argument of this dissertation that fiestas are an intrinsic means through which Mixtepequenses conceptualize what it means to belong to an indigenous community in the early 21st century, when the social, economic, cultural, and political aspects of life extend beyond borders. Advisors/Committee Members: L. Kaifa Roland, Carole McGranahan, Jen Shannon, Robert Buffington, John Monaghan.
