Anastasia Filippoupoliti is Assistant Professor in museum education at the Democritus University of Thrace (Greece). She is an historian of science by discipline and a professional museologist. She works on museology, museum education and exhibition design from the perspective of science museums and the history of science. She worked on these areas as a postdoctoral researcher in the Austrian Academy of Sciences researching also on art/science interrelationships.
She has edited a two-volume book entitled Science Exhibitions: Communication and Evaluation and Science Exhibitions: Curation and Design (MuseumsEtc 2010). She currently researches on how the history of science as a discipline informs the related science exhibitions and education programmes; this research will materialize in a special issue of the Science & Education journal (Springer 2013) that she currently co-curates. She has recently completed a funded exhibition project that considered the re-interpretation of the maritime past in the Maritime Museum of Andros island and the editorship of a guest issue of the International Journal of Heritage Studies (Taylor & Francis 2012) entitled “Memory in the Maritime Museum: Objects, Narratives, Identities”.
