My name is Mengshu Ye, and I’m a first year graduate student in the Public History program. I graduated from the State University of New York at Binghamton in 2020, majoring in History and Asian and Asian American Studies. I am from Changchun, China. I moved to the US five years ago to start my undergraduate studies; my research interests include women’s history, Asian American history, and immigrant history.
I am looking forward to exploring different digital tools and learn how they influence the way historians communicating history. I am especially interested in the topics of Digital Analysis and Visualization, and Digital Exhibition. This is something I haven’t explored before in my studies and I am excited to learn another branch of documenting history. I hope that by understanding how new media is integral in preserving and interpreting historical documentation and objects, I can use these tools in the future when I want to present history in a thorough manner.
