Loyola University Chicago Public History Video


Video Screen Capture

September 2009 – March 2010

I served as the producer-director of a promotional video for the public history program at LUC, where I was an instructor. This video is used for student recruitment and also for informational purposes for potential funding agencies or community partners.

Over the course of six months I wrote a script and, with the help of a graduate student assistant, shot interviews with students, faculty, and alumni, acquired other visual and audio assets, and edited the 8-minute video. This project was funded by the LUC graduate school and is now available on the LUC history department’s Web page.

The video takes the viewer through the Loyola program, from the decision to study public history to choosing Loyola to the curriculum and internship opportunities in metro Chicago to the relationship of alumni to the program after graduation. Loyola has both an M.A. program and a Ph.D. program in public history and the video draws on the words and testimonies of members of all areas of the program to illustrate its strengths and diversity.
