After receiving my doctorate in women’s history from the University of California at Los Angeles, I pursued an alternative academic career for six years, first as the assistant director of the women’s leadership program at Mount St Mary’s College in Los Angeles, where I also taught women’s studies and history, and then as the Director of the Women’s Center at William Paterson University of New Jersey, where I held a joint appointment as an assistant professor of history. I am now an associate professor of history at Rosemont College in Philadelphia where I also teach women’s and gender studies.
My method of Writing In Public is indebted to the practices of the feminist activists I study. I have published extensively about feminist art and social movements in the United States. My current project, The Politics of Women’s Culture, uses a combination of digital and traditional approaches to produce an intellectual history of the concept of women’s culture. I try to publish open access as frequently as possible and share that work online. Much of my paywalled work was written in public so drafts of it are available.
I prefer the term digital history to digital humanities. I have completed several projects, working primarily in computational linguistics and network analysis. I sit on the American Historical Association’s Digital History Standards committee. I am the digital history editor for Women and Social Movements. I offer workshops on curricular transformation, digital pedagogy, and tools for digital history projects. I blog for various venues, including a monthly column for the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities, and at my own blog History in the City. I can also be found on Twitter.
