Whose Common: 1750-1850

May 21, 2021

While COVID-19 has forced many operational shifts at the Paul Revere House, I am happy to report that our internship program still continues on strong, albeit in a virtual format. What follows is the tremendous work done by Fahim Rahim, our spring 2021 intern. Fahim is currently an M.A. student in History with a Public History track at Northeastern University. He was able to pull together very impressive primary and secondary source research for this multimedia project that utilizes his skills in the digital humanities fused with a sharp eye for reading material culture from the 18th and 19th centuries. “Whose Common: 1750-1850” is an impressive work, and a great showcase for Fahim’s intensive efforts in a very challenging semester. I am sure you all will enjoy this project – congratulations Fahim! – Robert
