I am a M.A. student pursuing a career in public history or museum work. As a historian, I am particularly focused on how people interact with history and how the presentation of history effects the public. My goal is to be able to use history to enable others to talk about different times and cultures in ways that allow those individuals to better understand and care about people different from themselves, whether that be through museum education, exhibit writing, or another public history opportunity. I also interested in discussions of religious belief and practice in general, though as an undergrad, I primarily focused on death, dying, and the afterlife and on Reformation-era religion (my research emphasis being sixteenth century British religion, specifically Catholicism in Elizabethan England).
