This is the professional site for Karen Sieber. I currently work as the Humanities Specialist for the McGillicuddy Humanities Center at the University of Maine, and serve remotely as the Outreach Coordinator for the Theodore Roosevelt Center. As a public historian, I consult on a variety of history projects nationwide, from museum exhibits to PBS programs. I strive to connect the public with the tools necessary to better understand, preserve and share the history around them. As a humanist, I am interested in promoting interdisciplinary, outside of the box research that engages diverse audiences. Click a menu item above for more on my work.
Read my latest piece for the American Historical Association, “An Act of Tactical History” about my work creating Visualizing the Red Summer, a rogue archive, timeline and map about the deadly Red Summer of 1919.
