I’m Erin Bernard. I am a graduate student at Temple University in Public History. This semester, the Objects in Culture blog will focus on my work for Archives and Manuscripts for Public Historians with TU Libraries SCRC Director Margery Sly. In the past, I have explored with Deborah Boyer in Digital History, with Dr. Seth Bruggeman in Managing History, as well as Studies in American Material Culture with Dr. Seth Bruggeman prior to my formal matriculation into the program. I am the creator of the Philadelphia Public History Truck and an active public historian/social practice artist in Philadelphia, PA. Thanks for being here.
