Introduction

Hello ya’ll! My name is Alexis Soto and I am a “senior” at St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, TX. I am majoring in Public History and minoring in International Relations. I was born in Durango, Mexico and was raised in Phoenix, Arizona. My interest in History was evident early on as I enjoyed my history courses and found the subject to be of great interests. After changing majors a few times I settled on Public History because I hope to one day be able express history to the general public through media and entertainment in ways that could lead to an educational experience. One of my favorite video games was Assassin’s Creed II which introduced me to Renaissance Italy and to its incredible history through game play. Perhaps I can create something that can lead to a similar experience for someone else.

  1. I’ve never played Assassin’s Creed but I’ve always been impressive by the graphics and content of the game. Would love to hear more in class or your blogs about the relationship between history and video games!
