A Research Fellow with Max Weber Foundation International Humanities (2015-2018) at the German Historical Institute Washington (GHI), I am an interdisciplinary cultural and literary historian of the twentieth century with expertise in digital methods and research interests in the digital humanities.
My research focuses on:
- transnational Canadian history of knowledge during the Cold War and “long sixties,” specifically the formation of Canadian culture and its understanding within these temporal rubrics
- East German visual culture and political dissent
- knowledge representation and creation, including discipline formation, modelling, and “citizen science”
- theories and methods of the digital humanities and digital history, approached through critical practice of experimentation, design, and implementation
Before coming to the GHI, I was concurrently a visiting Assistant Professor of English and Electronic Textual Cultures Lab postdoctoral fellow at the University of Victoria (2013-2015). I hold a PhD from the University of British Columbia (2013).
