Welcome! I started this blog to provide a venue for sharing my research projects and teaching ideas with a wider audience. As I finally take the plunge into the digital humanities and begin working in earnest on visualizing data sets from my dissertation research, I hope that in coming weeks and months this blog will showcase a number of projects I’m working on. I hope these projects are interesting but I also greatly hope that the visualized data can assist other scholars in further historical research.
This fall semester I also plan on using this blog to showcase a number of student projects I’m overseeing at Colorado State University, where I’m entering my second year of teaching as an adjunct instructor. I don’t want to give anything away, but I am very excited about the potential outcomes from this experiment I’ll be running. Thanks for visiting and if you’re interested, you can also find me on Twitter at @rjordan_csu.
