Historicize is the online home of Will Tchakirides, Ph.D. Candidate in United States History at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

As a public historian specializing in digital exhibition, Will has worked on projects for the National Museum of American History, Anacostia Community Museum, Encyclopedia of Milwaukee, and Jewish Museum Milwaukee. From 2014-2015, he helped build a grass-roots history of Black criminalization and incarceration in Milwaukee for the Transforming Justice research project. In Spring 2015, Will taught the undergraduate history course "African-Americans Since the Civil War" at UW-Milwaukee.
