Public History Introductory Blog Post


My name is Josie Barcley and I am from Erie, Pennsylvania. I am a first-year graduate student studying History and Digital Humanities. My favorite era of history to study is the French Revolution.


I have a beginner’s background in Digital Humanities. I have learned how to use various tools such as Omeka and Kepler in the course I took last semester, Into to Digital Humanities. However, I am looking forward to learning new skills, tools, and techniques in this course!


I am very interested in Digital Public History. My career goal is to become a museum curator and I believe this course will help me achieve that goal. I am interested in learning how public historians are able to create a digital space that displays history in an informative and effective way. I look forward to learning how to create my own digital projects.
