I’m Dr. Barbara Berglund Sokolov. Let me put history to work for you. I was a tenured history professor at a large research university and most recently the historian at an urban national park. Now I consult on a range of historical projects. I bring the best of academia and expansive, hands-on, practical experience to deliver top-notch historical products that are smart, compelling, relevant, and accessible.

Making the past relevant to society today.
Getting the facts straight is just the beginning… Let me help you with:
- Historical research to aid the legal process
- Vibrant content informed by the latest scholarship
- Archival research & oral history
Oral History with Noam Chomsky
Articles & Books
I confess, I have been bored by history too… which is why it is so important to do it WELL:
- Engaging on- and off-camera expertise for documentary films
- Powerful, enriching workshops for leaders and activists; companies and institutions
- Gifted discussion facilitator and panel moderator, digital or face-to-face
History is more than just names and dates… When it connects with people, it comes alive.
- Energizing, grounded content for exhibitions, interpretive programs, and tours
- Collaborative, meaningful institutional and community histories
- Community engagement
Please get in touch!
I’d be happy to join you in conversation about how my expertise can help you on your next project.
