I am a history professor and digital humanist. I am writing about how urban memorials and public art reveal the changing nature of cities and community identity in the twentieth century; the Cleveland Cultural Gardens provides a lens for this project, to give it rhetorical specificity. I am also researching the history of air racing.
As a digital humanist, I am the architect behind the new mobile history application that documents cleveland’s history, Cleveland Historical. Click through to the splash page and download. It will also be available at the Apple App Store and, by 2011, for Android and blackberry as well. Don’t have a smartphnone? Check us out on the parallel, Curating Cleveland site.
I write (sometimes), hike, take photos, play with the kids, run, nap, cook, and enjoy coffee on the deck on crisp autumn mornings.
