I am a public human, curiosity correspondent, and DH scholar.
I believe that using new media in museums can bridge communities, ignite excitement, and reinvent cultural spaces for the 21st century.
As a second-year MA student in Public Humanities at Brown University, I study community engagement and digital projects in cultural institutions. I also have a penchant for rethinking pedagogy, research, and academia in the digital age. Blending modern technology and a fascination with the history, I’m interested in exploring how historical scholarship can be reinterpreted by and for publics on the internet. I plan to use the methods of the historical and digital disciplines to build powerful, relevant narratives across mediums to inspire new audiences about the past.
