About

I am a senior History major focusing on LGBT issues. I am focusing on the new medium of Public History, and how this can be used to give voices to marginalized communities.

Research

I studied history and film abroad in Prague, Czech Republic.

My Experience

The history department has always provided a safe, productive space to engage with the questions and philosophies which have governed our societies for decades. The department really encourages students to analyze and critique modern cultural ideologies from a historiographical perspective; learning about their communities and themselves in the process.
