MASTER OF ARTS, JAMES MADISON UNIVERSITY

August 2018-May 2020

Area of study: Public History

Thesis: Exploring Rockingham’s Past (digital project, linked here)

Advisor: Dr. Evan Friss

Pursuing an M.A. in Public History provided an opportunity to develop cultural humility through intensive historical analysis, while also providing experience and study in the field of archival theory and practice. I would argue this is the beauty and strength of coming to archival education through public history. Understanding the process behind archiving and the foundation on which it stands is vital, however, understanding the historical context in which those records were created, and developing a cultural sensitivity to the many communities represented in those records, is just as important.
