About Life Of A Public Historian
The rise of social media gave birth to the influencer economy: pay-for-play “lifestyle” bloggers plugging products in their posts. But digital natives have had enough flakey fashionistas and shallow slideshows masquerading as legitimate content. We crave a more authentic experience steeped in the substance of our society. And that thirst for meaningful content is forcing the influencer economy to evolve.
This is where I come in.
Historians have a pulse on what’s cool from a timeless perspective and we back it up with material culture. We offer a deeper knowledge about everything in life, we view the trends in context. And we are the next influencer trend.
The future of the internet lies in our past. Get ready, historians, our time is now.
Although I'm being quite playful with the soaring declaration above, the work of public history does have serious, positive impacts on the communities we live in. I created the tHRED Institute to explore practical partnerships improve the lives of residents and travelers in heritage-rich regions.
