Egyptian Pyramids

How the Pyramids at Giza were built is one of Egypt's biggest mysteries. The Giza Pyramids, built to endure an eternity, have done just that. The monumental tombs are relics of Egypt's Old Kingdom era and were constructed some 4,500 years ago.

Industrial Revolution

The Industrial Revolution transformed economies that had been based on agriculture and handicrafts into economies based on large-scale industry, mechanized manufacturing, and the factory system. New machines, new power sources, and new ways of organizing work made existing industries more productive and efficient.

Kirby

My name is Jeni Kirby, and I am a historian. I enrolled at Southern New Hampshire University in 2013 to study history. From 2013-2017, I studied creative writing; American; European; and military histories; along with American literature and fiction. I was on the Dean’s and President’s List multiple times and was rewarded Program Dean’s List. I graduated at SNHU in 2017 with a 3.7 GPA; Magna Cum Laude Latin Honors; and a Bachelor of Arts History Degree. 

After taking a few months off, I enrolled in SNHU’S graduate program. From 2018-2021, I studied and mastered historical methodology (the Art of historical research and scientific writing) which includes historiography essays; comparative historical research; military theories; and historical narratives. I even wrote a 100-page thesis regarding the American Civil War. I graduated from graduate school in June 2021 with a 3.0 GPA. I earned a Master of Arts History Degree, and I currently tutor students in history, reading, writing, and math. When I am not tutoring, I am working on independent research and writing, which I promote through Stacks: The Study of History Podcast and The Historian’s Blog. 

My writing is unique with a combination of creative writing and scientific techniques. Using this writing style, I push my readers back in time, so they relive the past. By combining historical evidence (films; photos; official documents; letters; diaries; music; and literature) with historical lenses (cultures; societies; governments; militaries; genders; classes; races; economies; environments; and technologies), my podcast and blog illustrate the patterns and trends of the human experience to give audiences a true history without political correctness; judgment; racial guilt; or gender blame.

As a result, I write and produce a true history podcast and blog. Across these outlets, I set out to accomplish three major objectives: 1.) build knowledge and understanding of historical events using both primary and secondary sources. 2.) build upon historical scholarship to give back to the field. 3.) show that history is not offensive but a human story of struggles, failures, and accomplishments. Most importantly, I tell and write how humans built and formed our world from which we live.

Thus, my readership will find history entertaining. With extensive research, they will find real-life stories from old and new individuals; learn how past events folded and took place; and discover how these events impact us today. Therefore, readers and listeners will journey to each continent and explore Ancient history through the Vietnam War. As we stroll the roads of the past, we learn how the human species evolved and transformed the world from which we live. Please join me as we travel back in time to learn how our ancestors lived, thrived, and died, long ago.
