Some experience

Web Site:

I am Associate Professor of History and NLI (Networked Learning Initiatives) Faculty Fellow at Virginia Tech. I write about space dogs and am interested in how animals and inter-species relationships shaped the human past. I am developing connected courses in Russian-Soviet history and culture, animal studies and digital history. I also work with faculty to create, utilize and leverage networked learning environments.

What connected/open course or courses are you teaching or plan to teach?
20th-Century Russia Deep History and Domestication Awakening the Digital Imagination (Gardner Campbell syllabus) Historical Methods Soviet Culture Earthlings, a Global History
Are you participating in connected courses as an individual or with a local group of learners?


Would you like to connect with smaller groups over specific subjects?
