Ariel McManus (Blog) I received a B.A. in communications and a minor in English from Marymount University with the intention of entering the publishing industry. Instead, I fell in love with museums when I volunteered at the National Air and Space Museum. I currently work at the Franklin Institute where I develop programs for traveling exhibits such as Jurassic World, Terracotta Warriors, Vikings, and Marvel. My main interests are science history and the impact of infectious diseases.

CLASS OF 2020

Jessica R. Markey (Blog) I received a B.A. in History and American Indian Studies from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. I am a citizen of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina and my research interests include Native American history, diplomacy, race/ethnicity, and identity. My undergraduate honors thesis concerns the life and legacy of Moses Tunda Tatamy, an 18th century Delaware/Lenape diplomat. I have interned at Pennsbury Manor, the country estate of William Penn, where I researched the relationship between Penn and local American Indians to assist in the development of interpretive programs.

Alanna Shaffer (Blog) Shaffer earned a B.A. in Liberal Arts at Sarah Lawrence College, where she took the liberal arts idea to heart and studied everything from theatre and writing to Spanish and sociology. She’s cultivated a love for public history working as a Tour Guide at Eastern State Penitentiary, using interpretation of the prison’s history as a lens for discussing contemporary issues of incarceration. For the past three years at Eastern State, Alanna has also assisted in the development of the Returning Citizens Tour Guide program, an award-winning program which hires formerly incarcerated individuals to give tours of the site while incorporating their lived experience of incarceration.
