I’m attending a 2 week NEH funded Digital History Institute at the Roy Rosenzwieg Center for History and New Media at George Mason. I like to think of it as a digital history boot camp. This page will be a place of experimentation until I get the hang of it. Ultimately my plan is to create a blogging community for historians of the post Civil War South (or even post Reconstruction South all the way through the twentieth century). I’m still working on a catchy domain name for that project. I also hope to structure historycounts.net as a pedagogical resource for my students.
