About the Blogger

Seeing as this blog will be musings, research and findings from the desk of a history M.A. student, I thought it appropriate to introduce the student behind said desk.  First, my name is Gabrielle.  In April I graduated with an Honors B.A. from Trent University, majoring in history.  While there, my interests in the Soviet Union during World War II and Toronto’s 1960s music scene flourished.  Now I am embarking on a new, 12-month journey through the Masters of Public History program at Western University.

Over the past three summers, my fascination with public history has grown as I worked at Annandale National Historic Site in Tillsonburg, Ontario.  As a summer curatorial assistant, tourism assistant and summer camp coordinator, I learned the process of curating exhibits, working with the public and through the Living Memories Project, how to conduct and transcribe interviews.

I will be leaving a number of posts on this blog over the following semester for my Digital History course and I do hope that my readers find it thought-provoking.  Please feel free to leave comments and questions at any time.

Thank you for reading!

-Gabrielle
