Here you will find a list of my recent projects:
2017-2018: This academic year, I am the president of the Hagley Working Group, an organization of graduate students enrolled in the Hagley Program. I am also a co-coordinator of the University of Delaware’s History Workshop, where historians present their latest projects every week during the fall and spring semesters.
Summer 2017: I am currently the Stewart Fellowship Intern at the Delaware Historical Society. This summer I’m helping the DHS survey and inventory their paper-based collections into a custom database. This project involves examining each storage box and assessing the materials for content, conservation, and potential for future use by scholars and the public.
Winter 2017: I was a participant in SWAT, an eight day service learning project organized by the Museum Studies Program at UD. This year, SWAT traveled to Elkton, Maryland, to assist the Historical Society of Cecil County with collections care and management. In particular, this project involved handling and creating inventories for their historical clothing collection. More can be read about that experience here and here.
Fall 2016: I had the pleasure of working with a team of graduate students at UD to redesign Sustaining Places, a resource for small museums and historic sites coordinated by Museum Studies at UD and the Tri-State Coalition of Historic Places. Our updates included a new layout, up-to-date information regarding digital presence, administration, and educational outreach, as well as a new feature, Small Museum of the Month.
