Jillian Hinderliter

Jillian Hinderliter is a second-year graduate student in history at Northeastern University, and she is precisely as scrappy as she looks. Hailing from rural Pennsylvania, Hinderliter came to New England in search of a brand of history that only cities like Boston can deliver. Yearning to teach history as a shared past and interactive experience rather than an indisputable and unresponsive series of facts, she focuses her coursework on what is known as “public history,” or history outside of academia. In her few moments of spare time, Hinderliter enjoys indulging in her bibliophilia and crafting puns. She also partakes in part-time librarian work and ice hockey, though seldom at the same time.
