I’m Nicole, a student in the MA in American Studies for International Students program.  I spent the last year working for Historic Scotland (a government agency responsible for caring for over 340 historic properties across the country) as their Online Content Officer.  In this role I was responsible for the upkeep of the website (which was unfortunately built in the dinosaur-era CMS LiveLink) and also curated the social media channels for the agency, trying to engage people with their cultural heritage. 

Recently my research has focused upon oral history, mainly digital Holocaust survivor testimony and how to preserve, promote and provide access to it.
