Profile Information

Where Do You Consider Your "Hometown"?
Washington, D.C.
What is your interest in the Mass. Studies Network?
history of public history!
About Me:
Currently I manage internships for the History M.A. students in UMass Boston's public history and archives tracks, and I also teach one of the core public history courses in the program.

In the past, I have many years of experience in exhibit development and program planning for history museums and organizations, large and small, local, regional and national in scope and administration.

As a scholar, my interests are in American 20th century social and cultural history, and especially in shifting notions of "folk" and "tradition" and how they relate to our understanding of national and historical identity. I tend to use multidisciplinary lenses to explore the past, and the present, putting my PhD in American Studies to good use.
