Past Present: Exploring the intersections between past and present
About the author: I am a PhD student in American and Public History at Loyola University Chicago. As a scholar I research representations of gender and violence in nineteenth century urban culture. As a public historian, I am invested in creating digital and physical spaces for community dialogue on intersections between the past and the present. As a twenty-something woman, I spend too much time online critically consuming and polemicizing about popular culture.
