Empire State Engagements

with Dr. Robert Chiles

Meet the Empire State Engagements Team!

Empire State Engagements is excited to offer this internship program through the New York State Museum and with coordination from the University of Maryland Department of History's internship director, Dr. Julie Taddeo.  We are grateful to New York History, Cornell University Press, The Hudson River Valley Review, and the Hudson River Valley Institute for their munificence in supporting our internship program. 

We are grateful to our interns emerita, Ms. Caylee Song Larios and Ms. Maddie Martinucci,

for their valuable contributions to "Empire State Engagements"! 

We are excited to welcome our new intern, Ms. Brooke Timmins, who joined the Empire State Engagements team in September, 2023!

My name is Brooke Timmins and I am the newest addition to the Empire State Engagements team! I am a history major with a minor in art history at the University of Maryland. I am from Frederick, Maryland but have found my second home in College Park. I am a graduate of the College Park Art Scholars program and am currently in the Gymkana troupe at UMD. In my free time, I love to read, go on long walks, and see my family (including my dog Benny). In the future, I hope to pursue a career in museum work. As a history enthusiast myself, I am so excited to be able to be a part of sharing New York's history with everyone!
