Historicize is the online home of Will Tchakirides, PhD Candidate in United States History at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. His research explores how understandings of race, crime, and violence have informed a range of community building processes in metropolitan Milwaukee since the 1940s. As a digital and public historian, Will has worked on projects for the National Museum of American History, Anacostia Community Museum, Encyclopedia of Milwaukee, and Jewish Museum Milwaukee. He is currently helping build a grass-roots history of mass criminalization in Milwaukee for the Transforming Justice research project.
