Stanford doctoral student Cameron Blevins has a new blog post about his dissertation on the geography of the U.S. Post Office in the nineteenth century. It’s a great thing to read as we begin this masterclass, because it showcases:
- How a graduate student in history defines a research question
- How digital methods can help answer that research question
- How practicing digital history may lead one to collaboration and broader commitments about the sharing of research
