Lacey Hunter is a rising Senior at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She has been an editor for Traces since August 2016 and published a Public History essay in the fifth volume. Her role as a Traces editor not only includes helping to choose which papers will be published in the journal, but working with the authors to suggest structural and grammatical changes in order to prepare their paper for publication. Along with the other Traces editors, she works to develop the volume theme and content, as well as review the new Traces website.
As a rising senior, Lacey studies History, Archaeology, and Hispanic Studies. She is interested in the American Revolution, colonialism, as well as Cultural Heritage and Museum Studies. She is currently researching black loyalists at the close of the American Revolution within the context of the British Empire for her Senior Honors Thesis. She hopes to teach English in South America after graduation and eventually pursue a higher degree in History.
