The AHA is pleased to announce the winners of our 2017 AHA Today Blog Contest. Over the course of the summer, these historians will be writing for AHA Today about the archival research process and historical documents relevant to their dissertations.
A Massachusetts native, Bridget Keown received her BA from Smith College and her MA in imperial and commonwealth history from King’s College London. She is currently a PhD candidate in world history at Northeastern University. Her work focuses on British and Irish women and war trauma during the First World War.
Bernard C. Moore is a doctoral student in African history at SOAS, University of London. He holds an MA in African American and African studies from Michigan State University. His dissertation draws from economic history, environmental history, and animal history to explore transformations in sheep farming, agricultural labor, and vermin control in southern Namibia under apartheid. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The AHA Today Blog Contest is designed to highlight the voices of graduate students and to emphasize the importance of communicating the work of historians, broadly defined, to a variety of audiences and in a variety of media. Over the next few weeks, we will be publishing posts from each blogger, including an introductory post that will outline the issues they will be exploring all summer. Congratulations to our winners!
