Marie Nicole Coscolluela
MA in Public History (2017). Within digital humanities, I am particularly concerned about making museums more participatory institutions by incorporating interactive platforms and virtual reality in exhibit spaces and improving online visitor engagement through an intentional approach to social media. Using postcolonial theory, I hope to enhance the social justice elements of public history work and explore what it truly means to be a museum in the digital age.
PhD in Public History (ongoing). I am interested in spatial history and how digital mapping can enrich my research and change historians’ interactions with with public audiences.
MS in Technical Communication (TC), 2017. I'm interested in exploring how TC skills such as structured authoring, usability testing, and information design can be applied to and work with digital and visualization tools. In this way, I see TC as neither hacking nor yacking, but rather backing the needs of DH work--from content strategy to user interface--with well-researched data that informs a project's communication decisions.
PhD in Public History. I am interested in how visualizing historic spaces, objects, and concepts to allow people to interact more intimately with historical settings. My research delves into the physical memorial landscape of the Early American Republic, especially pertaining to monuments, many of which are gone. With digital methods, we can recreate them and weave their meaning back into larger narratives.
PhD in Public History.
Masters in Technical Communication. I am interested in combining digital studies with writing for technological uses. My research is on methods of using digital media to reduce complexity in the informational world where content must carry much of the burden of creating a usable experience.
