Writer, Editor, Public Historian

About Me

Hello! My name is Jubilee Marshall, and I currently work as a Web Writer and Content Strategist at New York University's Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. 

In 2022, I graduated from NYU with my master's degree in Archives and Public History. I enjoy working collaboratively to create engaging digital projects that explore the role of history in shaping the present. You can find examples of my work below. 

While in graduate school, I served as the associate editor for the Radical History Review, a continuation of my work as an editor and writing instructor at Prompt, the SRC Writing Center at the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, and Villanova University's Writing Center. As an editor, I strive to help writers hone their craft while also preserving their unique voice. I especially love working with students to create vibrant, personal, and effective college application essays—if you're interested in this service, get in touch.

Prior to graduate school, I spent a year in the Czech Republic as a high-school English teacher through the Fulbright Program. I have my TESOL certification (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and remain passionate about helping non-native speakers become fluent.

I graduated summa cum laude from Villanova University in 2019. There, I was a Presidential Scholar and a member of Phi Beta Kappa. I studied History and Peace and Justice; I was also a communications fellow at the Lepage Center for History in the Public Interest and a captain of the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl team.

I would be excited to lend my services as a public and digital historian, educator, or editor to your project! Email me to start the conversation
