My name is Paige Doerner. In 2013, I received my MA in American History from the College at Brockport. My focus of study was Material Culture and Public History. I am interested in archaeology, travel, literature and art history. I am currently working in the Marketing Department at the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, NY. You can view the Adirondack Museum’s website here, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter!
I am also currently serving on the Board of Trustees for the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts.
Since 2013 I’ve worked as the Social Media Outreach Coordinator for an on-going project called the Rochester Reform Trail, supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshop for School Teachers. You can learn more about the project here – make sure to follow on Twitter and like on Facebook!
I love the idea of incorporating history into the digital world through the use of social media. I have my iPhone with me everywhere I go, and am constantly snapping pictures of historic sites, tweeting about archaeological issues, and blogging about material culture and museum marketing news. What better way to get people interested in history than to put it right at their fingertips. I love the idea of creating a digital space in which history is easily shared and enjoyed. I see this relationship between history and digital space as a very valuable one, and have worked to create a career in which I can combine my passion for history and art with my love for digital marketing and online engagement.
Imponderabilia: plural noun; 1. “A series of phenomena of great importance which cannot possibly be recorded by questioning or computing documents, but have to be observed in their full actuality.” [Bronislaw Malinowski]
I love to travel and I am always looking to add to my list of countries visited (so far we have, Jordan, Turkey, Ireland and the remote reaches of mysterious Canada). Connected to this site are my history blog, Twitter and Facebook. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
