Welcome, Tricia and Morgan!

Dr. Tricia Peone, Program Manager, Humanities to Go

Tricia first discovered her love of the humanities at a local community college in her hometown of Rochester, NY. After switching between fine arts, art history, and classical literature she finally settled on a major in history. She went on to earn her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in history from the State University of New York College at Brockport. Tricia completed her Ph.D. in history at the University of New Hampshire in 2015. Her dissertation examined the ways that people interpreted experiences with preternatural phenomena such as witchcraft, wonders, and ghosts in the early modern British Atlantic world.
Before joining New Hampshire Humanities, Tricia previously worked as a historical consultant in the cultural resources industry and as an adjunct lecturer teaching courses on New Hampshire history, the Salem witch trials, and colonial New England. Tricia is excited to expand the Humanities to Go programming and will be traveling around the state over the next several months visiting many of our current programs.
Tricia lives in Dover and in her spare time enjoys reading and writing about the history of magic and the occult, collecting books, painting, and hiking. Contact Tricia at tpeone@nhhumanities.org.

 

Morgan Wilson, Marketing & Communications Specialist

Morgan grew up in the small town of Newport, NH. She first attended Emerson College in Boston, MA as a film major and then as a writing, literature and publishing major before graduating from Colby-Sawyer College with an English degree. Her senior year capstone examined pain and the ways in which its experience, expression and reception are gendered.
After graduation, Morgan accepted a fellowship position at Colby-Sawyer doing communications and event planning work for the Alumni Office. During her time as a fellow, she developed her skills and interest in graphic design and video work. Morgan has previous experience on film sets in a variety of positions. She has also worked on social media management and creating art-based curriculum for daycare, afterschool, and summer camp programs. Currently, she also writes freelance for the Argus Champion and the Eagle Times.
In her free time, Morgan enjoys collaging, photography, reading, journaling and pretty much any other creative activity. She also enjoys urban exploration, collecting VHS tapes, trying new things, and her cat Little Bear. You can reach Morgan at mwilson@nhhumanities.org.
