Celine Romano grew up in Italy and graduated from the University of Warwick, where she received her B.A. in History. Her work experience in a multidisciplinary arts center alongside her academic interests have informed an inquisitive approach to public history, memory and culture. Celine’s research has focused on critical whiteness studies and she hopes to learn how different narratives of identity are presented and understood in society. Through the Smithsonian Internship to Fellowship Program, Celine worked at the Anacostia Community Museum and carried out a Fellowship research project where she created digital education resources using the Learning Lab platform, bridging the Collections Department with education initiatives.
