Carolina has the opportunity to become a leading model in public humanities.

Robyn Schroeder first became interested in public humanities (although she wasn’t calling it that yet) as an undergraduate at Wesleyan University. She had always been fascinated with issues of public memory, and one thing she got involved with was giving campus tours, sharing the university’s history with students and their families.

That led to a series of jobs after graduation, at museums big and small. What she learned in that work was that there are experts in the world beyond the academy who can teaching everyone local and larger histories.
