BIOGRAPHY
A native of New Mexico, Sheila K. Hoffman has lived in 5 different countries and wandered through more than a dozen others as a trained art historian, museologist, iconologist. A former art museum director and curator, she refers to herself as, “A female Robert Langdon (minus the tweed) with a museum fetish and a passion for all things ancients.” But her quirky disposition is paired with an excellent academic background.

Sheila has not one, but two Ph.Ds. One from the Université de Paris I, Panthéon-Sorbonne in art history and the other from the Université du Québec à Montréal in Museology, Heritage and Cultural Mediation. Her research is on how digital technologies can be used to capture, preserve and disseminate world heritage. In 2013, she was named as one of Canada’s prestigious Vanier Graduate Scholars for her proposed dissertation and in 2020 won the Art Luminary award at the University of Oklahoma, her alma mater.

Sheila currently serves on the faculty of the University of Massachusetts, Lowell and is a lecturer for Tufts University’s graduate museum studies program.
