Joined the Department:
After teaching high school in California from 1999-2002, he decided to return to school to pursue a PhD in American History. His research includes work on Nebraska Territory, social and cultural change, and nineteenth century America. His research explores the transformation of life in nineteenth century America as it transformed through the industrial revolution as exemplified by the complex issues that faced Indian Territory as it confronted railroads, immigrants and the impact of coal mining. He is exploring these interactions by using digital tools to compose and investigate his field. Some of his current digital work can be found at his website.
His digital interests are best expressed in his blog found at robvoss.wordpress.com
