UCHRI Welcomes Stephanie Narrow, Graduate Student Researcher

I’m a 6th year history PhD Candidate at UC Irvine (graduating Summer 2023!) I’m honored to be ending graduate school working with the incredible team at UCHRI to share some of the amazing UCHRI-funded projects on Foundry.

Working to present these works to broader audiences builds upon my public history experiences. I’ve previously served as the Public History Editor for California History, a University of California Press journal. Prior to attending UCI, I contributed to numerous museum installations in the Los Angeles area, including exhibitions at the Autry Museum, California Historical Society, and El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument. 

For the last 5 years, I’ve served as the Program Officer for UCI History Department’s Career Development for Historians Program (CDH), where I also host and produce the Krieger Hall Chronicles podcast. I am the co-editor, alongside Kim Cary Warren and UCI faculty Vicki L. Ruiz and Judy Tzu-Chun Wu, of the 5th Edition of Unequal Sisters (Routledge, forthcoming 2023).

My own research looks at how diplomacy and print media shaped anti-Chinese and anti-Indigenous laws and attitudes during the 1850s gold rushes in British and American empires.

I unwind by reading fantasy and historical fiction, binging the latest period drama on PBS’s Masterpiece Classic, and walking my chihuahua, Poppy, at Newport Back Bay.
