I am associate
professor of history here at
the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. I teach
courses on early America, Native Americans, and the history of media
and the senses. I am the author of How
Early America Sounded
and I am currently working on two books, one an introduction to the
history of hearing and the other comparing the rise of print culture in
eighteenth-century North America to the rise of internet culture
today. I have has also written three award-winning articles on
music, creolization and African American culture.
Lately, I have been director of the Digital Arts and Humanities Initiative at UH. I am also a musician who has found ways to use music and sound to “do” history whenever possible.
For Fall 2015 I will be teaching two new
courses, HIST 400, Digital
History in the Global Village, and HIST 605, a Graduate Seminar in Digital Humanities.
If you are curious,
That's it for now!
