About

I am interested in the connections between digital technology and the communication of historical knowledge. The digitizing, cataloging, and archiving of vast amounts of historical texts has transformed the way we research and produce writing about history. The only way to find out which direction we are headed in is by jumping into the fray and experimenting with the vast array of (changing) digital tools and platforms for communicating research in history. Student creativity in digital projects is a joy to behold.
