#BreakUpTheTrusts! While teaching “Gilded Age and Progressive Era U.S. History,” my students and I used hashtags to summarize and discuss the campaign platforms of the four U.S. presidential candidates in the 1912 election, thereby incorporating digital humanities tools into a conventional classroom discussion.

My teaching interests include U.S. history after 1865, the U.S. West, U.S. engagement with the Pacific World, borders and borderlands, the history of technology, maritime history, digital history, cultural landscapes, infrastructure studies, urban and suburban history, and space and place.
