JOINED THE DEPARTMENT
Anne Reiva joined the program after receiving her Bachelor’s Degree at Buena Vista University in Storm Lake, Iowa. Her work is centered around the commemoration of nineteenth-century violence on the Great Plains. Currently, she is working towards completing her MA by investigating the 1868 incident at Washita in present-day Oklahoma, looking at both the event itself and the way its narrative has been reconstructed at the National Park Service’s Washita Battlefield National Historic Site.
Her work as Graduate Research Assistant at the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities has allowed her to take part in a number of projects, including the Salmon Pueblo Archaeological Research Collection, the William F. Cody Archive, and the ongoing attempts to enrich metadata for Nebraska Homestead documents.
