    Can I just tell you how much I enjoy these posts about your dissertation.  I studied public history in undergrad and graduate school and often think about how my scrapbooking and memory keeping relates back to those themes and ideas from my pseudo academic days.  Thanks so much for sharing!

  • Thank you for the feedback! It’s kind of risky to take research results to the community that was studied and I’m glad it has been mostly positive. I’m glad you enjoy it! I really appreciate the feedback from readers because the whole project is constantly being revised and reworked and future research is being planned (a long way out, but still ideas are constantly being generated).
