Allie Marchesani is an intern at NJCH who supports the programs team by helping with grant evaluation and program development. She is a graduate student and History Fellow at Rutgers University – Camden pursuing an M.A. in Public History. Having received her B.A. in Archaeology and Anthropology from Lycoming College, Allie combines archaeological and historical sources in her research on gender and sexuality in nineteenth century urban spaces, with a focus on brothels and other meeting places of the “underground economy.” She is excited to apply her previous work experience in archives and museums to aid NJCH in uplifting the public humanities and engaging communities with their diverse histories. Outside of work, Allie can usually be found scouring the thrift stores of South Jersey for vintage items.
