Welcome to publichistory.media. My name is Joshua Wachuta, and I’m a PhD Student in U.S. and Public History at Loyola University Chicago. I’m also a bit of a geek, assembling computers and spinning up Linux virtual servers in my spare time. My interests in history and technology intersect in HIST 479, the Public History New Media course at Loyola. I’ll be blogging here about my experiences taking this course through the Spring of 2016, and I look forward to discussing the possibilities and challenges that new media can bring to public historians. You can find out more at the About page.
