Hello, Amherst

Submitted by Diana M. Briggs

I'm Diana.


I'm finishing up my final year of graduate school at the University of Maryland, getting a dual MA/MLS in History and Library Science. I'm hoping to become a records manager, and I have a special interest in digital preservation and content management. I plan to write my MA thesis in History on the effects of NATO export controls on socialist technology policy in the 1960s. Hopefully, I'll be done with both degrees in May, 2010.

While at Amherst, I double majored in History and Russian Studies. I lived in Porter House, and was Russian House President for three semesters. I spent the summer of 2009 in Russia, studying at Moscow International University for Technology and Business Management.

I dig cooking, wine, biking and kayaking. You can find out what I'm eating here: www.cookingcommando.blogspot.com
