I am a social historian who privileges architecture, landscapes, objects, and artworks in my research, public interpretation, and teaching strategies. My recent book Company Suburbs: Architecture, Power, and The Transformation of Michigan's Mining Frontier (Univ of Tennessee Press 2021) investigates space, materiality, and mobility in domestic landscapes to explore complex social identities in America between 1875 and 1920. I focus on Michigan’s Copper Country as a case study for using overlapping social landscapes as a framework for place-based examinations of class and gender identities. By documenting well-preserved late nineteenth-century patternbook houses, and contextualizing their suburban neighborhoods in a modernizing industrial community, my work implicates buildings and landscapes in the development of relational class identities and acts of resistance. Another area of my research examines the roles of digital spatial tools in community-engaged heritage projects. I co-direct the NEH-sponsored historical GIS of the Copper Country called the Keweenaw Time Traveler, which asks “Citizen Historians” to contribute their own knowledge about landscape change over time and to help process additional historical data. In my undergrad courses, students add their research with primary documents and material evidence to this growing "deep map" to learn place-based digital storytelling. These projects are demonstrating the value – both pedagogical and scholarly – of combining mobile-enabled HGIS projects with techniques in community-engaged scholarship to create active learning opportunities.
