HASRP: Where Are They Now?

In honor of the 25th anniversary of Rauner Library in April 2024, we asked former Historical Accountability Student Research Fellows to share what they've been up to since their fellowship term. Here's what they told us...

Caroline Cook '21

After her fellowship term at Dartmouth, Caroline went on to be an Editor-in-Chief of the Jack-o-Lantern (spending time in the archives and reading all the old issues made running such a storied Dartmouth institution all the more meaningful) and completed an internship at the Hood Museum (what she learned in the archives translated well to exhibit construction). She also developed an honors thesis in Creative Writing, a historical novel, loosely based on her research at Rauner that she later published. Since graduating, Caroline has worked in communications for large and small companies, currently in financial services in New York City. She brings to all her work now a heightened awareness for why systems may behave the way they do, and is sure to ask for the historical context behind decisions. It's made transitioning into new roles very easy, since that archival perspective can be translated to everything, not just special collections.

Sam Koreman '20

Currently, Sam is a PhD candidate and summer instructor in the Department of Politics at the University of Virginia. As a political theorist, she is intensely grateful for the training in archival research she received as part of her HASRP fellowship. Rauner prepared her to take on some of her most engaging research assistantships. On one occasion, she ended up covered in dust, deep in the sub-basement of the National Grange! Sam's research into Dartmouth’s process implementing Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act gave her a crucial perspective on how public and private institutions must work together to implement policy.

Cece King '23

Cece King is currently in her second gap year working on her first feature-length, bilingual documentary, "Si la isla quiere." In a world where human life seems incompatible with nature, this film investigates how 1000 resilient Chileans resist norms in community and conservation to live fully on the most biodiverse, remote island in the world. She is now raising funds for post production! Drawing on her Geography major, arts background, and human culture research projects such as the Historical Accountability Research Fellowship, Cece views this film as her capstone Dartmouth experience.

Londyn Crenshaw '22

Londyn is an editorial assistant at Cherry Bombe, a media company that focuses on women in and around the world of food and drink. Her time as a historical accountability fellow was integral to her career path as the fellowship prompted her to change her major to history and write an honors thesis. Londyn’s senior thesis focused on Black agricultural labor from the antebellum to the early 20th century. The fellowship and her subsequent thesis work gave her the tools and confidence to pursue a career in food media.

Leeza Petrov '22

Since finishing her Historical Accountability Fellowship and graduating from Dartmouth, Leeza received a Fulbright grant and is currently serving as an English Teaching Assistant at the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Antwerp, Belgium. In her teaching role, she has been able to share a summary of her Fellowship project with her students as part of a broader discussion around HIV/AIDS and stigma. She credits Rauner with sparking a previously-untapped passion for archival research and hopes that she will be able to do similar projects in the future.

Since winter term, she has been back on campus, continuing her work in Rauner as a student assistant to Jay Satterfield, and she has adapted her HASRP research into a Sociology honors thesis.
