About robvoss

I am a professor at Northwest Missouri State University working on both American History and in Social Science Education. I study nineteenth century history, specifically railroads, coal mining, and settlement in Indian Territory. I use digital tools to further research and publication and am very interested in scalable projects that are usable on smaller campuses. I have worked on Civil War Washington, a digital project on Washington DC integrating the works of Walt Whitman and the geography of Abraham Lincoln with Ken Price and Ken Winkle through the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities. I also worked on Railroads and the Making of Modern America, a digital project directed by Will Thomas and on Digital History, a digital project directed by Will Thomas and Doug Seefeldt. I am eager to see what can be done with history and technology in an academic sense, moving beyond basic consumer-oriented historical content and into alternative displays and interactions between users and content to explore non-linear digital history.
