Hello, my name is Grace Beattie and I am a master's student in public history at Royal Holloway University of London. I am now back in the states working on my final dissertation project and actively seeking employment in NYC in the museum, journalism, or publishing sector.
Both my undergraduate and graduate programs involved intense research and analysis of primary and secondary sources, artifacts, and historical arguments. I received a B.A. in History in May 2020 with a concentration in Public History. While studying for my undergraduate degree, I received a distinction for a research essay titled “‘With Them Was My Home’: The Female Captivity Narrative in the 18th Century”, as well as receiving a distinction in graduate school for a research blog titled “The Maligned Queen: The Life and Legacy of Katherine Howard.” In addition, for my master’s final project I produced and published a podcast series titled Wicked Women: The Podcast. Within the podcast, I research, analyze and interview leading experts about specific women in history.
I am an avid reader and researcher, dedicated to and passionate about disseminating information to the public in an accurate and engaging way through various platforms, including podcasts, blogs, websites, and social media. I am effective at time management as I prioritize my workflow to produce quality output. One of my strengths lies in my communication skills with donors, colleagues, and the public. I believe I can bring the skills I have gleaned from my education, internships, and volunteer opportunities to your organization and prove myself to be a vital asset to your team.
