Check out my recap of the HASTAC conference in November.
In the August heat, the United States rejoined a battle over the Confederacy, this time, over municipal plans to remove Civil War monuments. Guest Julian Chambliss says the debate is not so much about history, as it is about our collective memory.
I'm working with Scot French (UCF) to reimagine the historical narrative of Winter Park.
I was invited to Story in the Public Square to talk about history and culture around the Confederate Flag and comics. Check it out online this weekend.
I've put the effort into defining my work in a broader community context. Running down the list of possible ways to engage in our modern world can get confusing. Nonetheless, I still try to follow through on the idea of creating meaningful dialogue around urban issues no matter the context I'm dealing with. The academic landscape has shifted over the last five years with the emergence of digital communities linked to twitter. Hashtags like #Twitterstorians allow academic groups to communicate with each other, the impact of virtual communities are powerful and clear. #SaturdaySchool is social justice theme virtual meetup. I guest hosted on Sept 16th in conjunction to the run-up to 17th National Conference on Planning History. You can read the virtual convo below!
