Pronouns: she/her

Research interests:

Anne graduated from Bard College in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Cultural Anthropology and Experimental Humanities. At Bard, she worked in the Media Corps and Digital History Lab, as well as assisted with archaeological investigations. After graduation, Anne was selected for a yearlong fellowship at the Thomas Cole National Historic Site in Catskill, New York where she developed an American with Disabilities Act (ADA) document with site-wide recommendations, a 360-degree tour, and assisted in development of an educational game. Anne has also served as an Alumni Fellow at the Bard College Center for Experimental Humanities and continued to develop projects related to her senior thesis, “Ward Manor: Care for the Elderly and Digital Memory”. Besides graduate studies, she is currently serving as an NEH funded researcher for a small historical society in Western Maryland developing digital interpretation materials, online events, navigational-touring plans, videos, and podcasts based on oral history interviews with a focus on historic foodways. Her intended graduate research will focus on material culture, memory studies, and heritage management. She hopes to link historical research, archaeology, and anthropological theory to create impactful learning experiences for museums and heritage sites
