Caroline Elizabeth Klibanoff
2018 CSSH Master’s Commencement Ceremony Student Speaker
Caroline Klibanoff is a 2018 graduate of the Master of Arts in history program with a concentration in public history, as well as the graduate certificate in digital humanities. At Northeastern, her research focused on commemoration, local and family history, and the American South, culminating in a final project, the “Digital Atlas of Southern Memory,” which presents a prototype for a new form of memorialization beyond statues and plaques. Her fieldwork experience included helping to produce multimedia exhibits at the National World War II Museum for Northern Light Productions, writing an update for the National Register of Historic Places on the Longfellow House in Cambridge, planning the Fall Symposium for the Cambridge Historical Society, and teaming up with classmates to launch the Humanities Action Lab’s States of Incarceration exhibit on campus. She also worked as coordinator for Snell Library’s Digital Scholarship Group and as the digital director for Big Tent Nation, a civic engagement startup.
Prior to attending Northeastern, Klibanoff worked at the Pew Research Center in strategic communications and video production, and at the FrameWorks Institute in video and online course development. Originally from Atlanta, she graduated from Georgetown University in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts in American studies and film & media studies. In her spare time, Klibanoff enjoys running a lively history blog, called Sistory, with her two sisters. Upon graduation, Caroline plans to work in the cultural heritage sector in Boston or Washington, D.C.
