About Kayla

Tower Bridge, 30 January 2018

Hello! My name is Kayla Campana. I am a History M.A. candidate at the University of Central Florida and budding historian. My research and thesis centers on the Great War and trauma.

As an M.A. candidate in the History Department at UCF, I have worked on and participated in a number of departmental projects ranging in topic and medium. Some of these projects include the Florida in World War I Project, interviewing and being interviewed for the Knights HistoryCast Podcast, and assisting in the organization of hosting a traveling exhibit out of the Smithsonian called Changing America: The Emancipation Proclamation, 1864 to the March on Washington, 1967.

Along with my role as an M.A. candidate, I am a full time staff member in my department. I work with the Public History program and a number of the Public History endeavors. My role has allowed me to aid in publicizing the undergraduate and graduate programs, in addition to helping in the organization and promotion of departmental events, which include academic lectures, workshops, and student and faculty showcases.
