I am a student in the Certificate of Digital Public Humanities and an associate professor of history at Montclair State University. I have a limited background in Digital Humanities. I took the first course of the certificate, Introduction to Digital Humanities, last fall. I have also been a host for the New Books Network, where I have done many interviews for the New Books in African Studies channel.

My interest in Digital Public History stems from my work on historiography and philosophy of history and a general interest on how the discipline of history has evolved over the past 200 years. I am particularly interested in how the epistemological and ethical obligations for historians have changed in light of new technologies, but also as a result of changing geo-political landscapes since World War II. 

My goal this semester is to broaden my understanding of the history of Public History and to acquire the fundamental skills that will allow me to develop a public history project, and also introduce my students to this particular way of practicing and studying history.
