Team AY 2022-2023
Hi, my name is William Hastings. I’m a 21-year-old attending Georiga Southern University majoring in history and religious studies. I choose history because it teaches crucial problem-solving skills and critical thinking whilst learning the progression of human beings as a society. Religious studies accomplish much of the same thing but provide a different lens to view history. When I'm not furthering my education you’ll most likely find me working as a cook at Cracker Barrel or building computers as a hobby. My cat Dr. Pepper is my best friend, I found him inside a trash can eating chicken tenders as a baby and he has since accompanied me in college.
Will wrote out the definitions for the various terms we use to categorize the different volumes.
Hello, I am Mady Bullard. I am a history major and an anthropology minor at Georgia Southern University. I am the 2022-2023 Treasurer of the Pi chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, the national history honor society. I am interested in colonial period as well as medical history. I have a proficiency in Spanish. My interest in Public History and Women’s History drew my interest into the project. Outside of the project, I am often singing or embroidering (often cross stitch).
Mady was with the Project all year, and made enormous strides in identifying the women print workers and plotting out the networks which connected them. We used the information she tracked down to begin more biographies and to start working on a broad scale with RootsMagic. She presented her work at the 2023 CURIO Symposium (one of the undergraduate research symposia held at Georgia Southern annually) and took first place for oral presentation!
