2019 Capstone Presentations

On Tuesday, May 14th, 2019 our graduating MA students in Archives and Public History presented their final capstone projects. The capstone is a yearlong project where students put what they’ve learned in their coursework to use on a project that they design, shape, and carry out. This year’s event featured projects by Emily Anderson (Public History), Alexandra Gomer (Archives), Clinton Krute (Archives), Alexa Logush (Archives), Daniel O’Connor (Archives), Kate Philipson (Archives), and Abigail Wilson (Archives).

  • When: Friday (2/8/19), 4 pm – 8 pm // Saturday (2/9/19), 10 am – 6 pm
  • Description of Event (taken from the event website): “This year’s Scholar and Feminist conference builds on BCRW’s close collaboration with the Barnard College Archives to address the complex questions that circulate around the politics and ethics of archival work. Central to traditional scholarly work in reconstructing and interpreting the past, archives are perhaps even more crucial to the preservation of the stories and legacies of marginalized communities and political movements.”
