Hi! My name is Keira Richards.
I’m graduating this month with a BA in History and a Digital Studies Certificate. I started as a physics major at CU boulder. I really found my calling in history and the community at UCD. My research has focused on neglected or ill studied cultural topics like the Colorado Punk movement, mental illness in early New England and the Turkish language reform. Due to my passion for accessible public history, I’ve posted my project on my website www.keirarichards.com
I hope to peruse a career in public service and legislature. History and Digital Studies has given me the ability to synthesize data and narratives into holistic analyses which I hope can aid in the betterment of our democracy.
