I appreciate whole-heartedly that the tag line for the first Digital History Class is don't panic. I am not an internet dummy per se, but I am very much intimidated by the prospect of writing something that more people than myself, my professors, and a few choice editors might read. I think we all may be having that feeling of who am I that I should write something so public. So to answer that question, I am a student at the University of Western Ontario, trying very hard to accumulate degrees. I am currently in the Public History MA program at Western. Recently I completed a first MA at the University of Nottingham in Norse and Viking Studies. My first degree was in Medieval Studies at Queen's University. I am a medievalist by training, and I aspire either to perhaps go on to a PhD or to work somewhere in the vast field of Public History. Above all I aspire to be relevant in my field; hence the blog.
