Processing Archivist

Kris Kallies

Kris Kallies received both of his Bachelor’s Degrees (2006 & 2015) and Master’s Degree in Library Studies with a focus on archives and museums (2017) from The University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. He wrote his Master’s thesis on the display of cultural and religious artifacts in museums and how authority figures mediate meaning in exhibit creation. Before coming to Sewanee to work as a processing archivist, Kris worked at The Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming. During his time at the museum, his work concentrated on processing archival collections with the intent of reconciling the true history of the West with the “Wild Wild West” that appears in popular American culture. Currently, while Kris works mainly on processing underrepresented archival collections for the Southern Studies Program, his research is focused on telling the history of the university through the lens of Sewanee’s football program. Kris has been recognized by the Southeastern Museums Conference for his work in updating permanent museum exhibits that have become culturally insensitive due to their age, decay and lack of modern interpretive research.
