Jack Tracey

Jack Tracey is currently studying for a Ph.D. in history under the supervision of Dr. Ben Marsh at the University of Kent. A recipient of a CHASE scholarship and the University of Kent’s ‘Bolt’ award, his research focuses on the experiences of British Loyalists in Georgia during the American Revolution. Jack has worked extensively in archives in both Britain and Georgia, presenting his work at the BAAS and BGEAH conferences. During his time at Kent, Jack has also taught on the American Revolution and the British Atlantic world (1580-1763).

From September to December 2017, Jack enjoyed a placement working at Culture 24 in their Brighton office. Working with museums, archives, and other partner institutions, Jack identified, sourced, and secured the use of objects for the Age of Revolutions project. Jack has since continued to work closely with Culture 24, leading a cohort of student volunteers to collate and upload the necessary information accompany object images for the project website.
