Juliana Philipp

Research Assistant II

Action Center



In 2003, I moved from a small city in the Amazon, Brazil to Chicago.  After finishing my B.A in Social Sciences with emphasis in Cultural Anthropology in 2004, I started working at The Field Museum as a volunteer in the  Anthropology Collections Center working mainly with South America Collection (specially Brazil, Colombia, and Peru). At that same year I was hired to work as a collections assistant in the WCE (World's Columbia Exposition) Project.  The WCE Project's main goal was to photograph and update the Anthropology database of more than 30.000 objects, which came from the 1893's World's Fair.
