About This Site
PublicHistory.Media is a blog on the topic of new media for collecting, sharing, and making use of the past. I created this blog as part of the Public History New Media graduate course at Loyola University Chicago in Spring 2016. Since then, I’ve continued to post occasional updates on public history media projects.
About The Author
My name is Joshua Wachuta. I am a freelance public historian with a Ph.D. in U.S. and Public History. In the past I’ve worked as a public historian at the Wisconsin Historical Society and the National Park Service. I’m also an enthusiast for free/libre software and its usefulness in creating and sharing history media. I’ve used open source tools to help develop websites and exhibits for a number of community historical organizations. You can learn more about me at my profile.
In addition to this site, I also blog about assorted adventures and creative projects at A Tree Left Standing.
