Moriah Webster, a Fredericksburg, Virginia native, received her B.A. in Art History with a minor in French from Randolph-Macon College (Ashland, Virginia) in 2016. As an undergraduate, Moriah completed academic internships at Colonial Williamsburg’s Margaret Hunter Millinery Shop and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. These internships ultimately led her to the topic of her senior thesis, “Fashioning an Anglo-American Identity: Clothing in Early American Portraiture” and further research which she presented at the 2015 Southeastern College Art Conference. Most recently she was a curatorial intern at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Quantico, Virginia. During her time in the Material Culture and Public Humanities program, Moriah plans to focus on curatorship, exhibit design, and museum management. After completing her M.A. in Material Culture and Public Humanities at Virginia Tech, Moriah hopes to pursue her Ph.D. in a related field.
