Jeanine Mazak-Kahne, associate professor (PhD Michigan State University 2009),
specializes in public and 20th-century U.S.
history. She teaches courses in public
history and public memory, organized crime, archival principles and practices,
and oral history. Her research interests
include local history, public history education, organized crime, and the
representations of gender in FBI case files.
Her recent work examines the importance of partnerships
between university public history education and local historical institutions
as a tool for instruction as well as a way to foster civic engagement in young
public history professionals. Dr.
Mazak-Kahne’s current research project examines the late 1940’s conflict
between an aluminum workers’ local and USWA district administration, against
the backdrop of USWA negotiations with Big Steel, as a struggle for control of
the local’s influence in community affairs.
Dr. Mazak-Kahne serves as the History program’s internship
coordinator and the graduate program coordinator.
