I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln specializing the digital humanities and urban history. My blog houses my thoughts on the digital humanities, academia and graduate student life, urban topics and occasionally other items. I am also currently developing digital history projects for The Rise and Fall of the American Small City, a digital component to my dissertation that examines how smaller cities in the Midwestern United States navigated industrial and urban change during the Gilded Age and Progressive Era.
