From 2016-2017, I managed Digital NH, a Curatescape exhibit that was a project of the University of New Hampshire at Manchester’s now-defunct Public History minor. I built the Curatescape site using open-source files from Github in the summer of 2016. It was hosted by Reclaim Hosting. The individual exhibits were built by undergraduate students who are enrolled in Digital or Public History courses.
Frank Palmer Speare: Educational Visionary
Francis Palmer Speare was Northeastern University’s first president. I built Frank Palmer Speare: Educational Visionary in the spring of 2004, when I was employed as an archives assistant for the Northeastern University Archives and Special Collections Department. The web exhibit was based on a previous archives exhibit by another staffer. My involvement included the production of the website, digitization of documents involved, and also some additional research in archival and manuscript collections to flesh out the exhibit.
We Raise Our Voices
We Raise Our Voices was a collaborative archival and web exhibit created by staff of the Northeastern University Archives and Special Collections Department in 2003.
The exhibit highlights Northeastern University’s social justice collections, documenting Boston-area African American, Latino, Women, and LBTGQ organizations. My primary responsibilities involved research, writing, and creating the segment of the exhibit dedicated to women’s rights initiatives.
While working at Historic New England, then the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities, I supported work on two exhibits. One of them was Cherished Keepsakes, an exhibit on 400 years of New England’s decorative arts history. The exhibit opened in Boston in 2001 and traveled to venues around the United States over the next four years. An overview of the exhibit can be found here. A review of the exhibit can be found here. I also supported the Pilgrims, Products, and Patriots exhibit that was on display in One Bowdoin Square.
