The Lehman Center Public History Project provides financial and professional assistance to graduate students interested in bringing history to a broader public. The Public History Project encourages public-facing history projects that address major topics through research, writing, and digital scholarship, and which target a broad and diverse audience.
This year, our Public History fellows were Elya Assayag, Mariana Katz, Lucas Ramos, Marie Robin, and Juliana DeVaan. We held four meetings over the semester covering op-ed writing, digital history tools, and podcasting, with guest presentations by Jeremiah Mercurio from the Columbia Libraries, Adrienne Shih from the New York Times, and Bill Healy from the "Somebody" podcast.
