Restorative History and Community Engagement Fellow

Andrey Arcidiacono is an undergraduate student at George Mason University studying government and international politics. His work involves archival research in close partnership with the Maryland State Archives as well as work that establishes community archives for racial and cultural healing. His work focuses on bringing the local history of Maryland’s Eastern Shore to light through a community-led process of preserving and making accessible their history. Through this effort, Andrey hopes to further develop his understanding of archival research practices and contribute to a transformational community-led narrative change that restores local histories.
