This site originated as part of a class project for Loyola Graduate Program course Public History New Media. The possibilities that new media offers seem extraordinary. Web 2.0 allows further democratization of the web, empowering individuals and groups. These tools can provide voice to silenced or misrepresented sectors of society, creating richer experiences.

The production of History may also benefit from these exciting and more accessible technological innovations. In order to achieve a better understanding between communitiy members and professionals of history, social media serve as teaching tools and as instruments to reach multiple and various audiences.

My hope is to foster critical thinking among those who explore this site, and to bring greater levels of understanding on senstive issues such as memory
