I received a Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Arts: History from Michigan Technological University. Relevant history coursework at Michigan Tech includes courses in Western Civilizations, American History, History of Europe, History and Cultures of the Pacific, History of England (I & II), Copper Country History (history of the local area), and History of Science and Technology. My research paper for the capstone Historiography course was entitled “Superior Entertainment: Historic Amusement Parks in Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula”, which relied heavily on archival research.
Currently, I am in the Master’s of History program at UW-Milwaukee. As part of my Research Methods in Local History course, I conducted a research project that required me to perform an in-depth analysis of a single visual source utilizing the StoryMap JS web platform and the March on Milwaukee digital collection and various physical collections of the UW-Milwaukee Archives. The project, entitled “Image of Contradiction”, can be found here.
