My name is Molly Brooker-Corcoran, I’m a 23 year old History graduate (University of Birmingham and University of Southampton), and an aspiring Public Historian/Historical journalist. I thought this blog would be the perfect way to practice my writing skills.
The name biasedhistorian comes from my belief that embracing your personal biases can help in the study of history. This is explained in more detail in a post of mine. This blog will be a mix of posts regarding what I’ve been studying, what I find interesting, what I find infuriating, and anything that I read/hear that sparks my interest. I plan to keep it relatively history-orientated but if I ever go off into a tangent completely unrelated, my apologies.
I am passionate about Gender History and Public History, and hope to one day pursue a career in these areas. You will see many many blogposts dedicated to these fields, especially on my love for herstory and the telling of women’s stories. Feel free to browse through my Women category to find posts on this topic.
For now, please enjoy my posts. I hope you find something you can relate to, or even something you do not agree with. I would love to hear any feedback.
