About meJason is the Digital Engagement Librarian and Assistant Professor of History at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Previously, he served as the Academic Technology Specialist in the Department of History at Stanford University. He completed his PhD in History at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, with a focus on the environmental history of Silicon Valley and the emergence of environmental politics in the postwar American West. He pursues teaching and research interests in the North American West, urban and environmental history, and digital history. He took a B.A. from South Dakota State University and an M.A. from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. During the five years he spent at Nebraska he developed or collaborated on several digital history projects, both faculty-led and for his own research.

Prior to joining Stanford, he served as the project manager for the William F. Cody Archive at the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities at UNL for two years. Since joining Stanford in January 2013, he has had the opportunity to initiate several digital history research projects led by faculty and graduate students in the Department of History and has contributed to projects and discussions at the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA) regarding research, teaching, peer review, and publishing.

As a researcher using digital history, Jason engages a variety of digital methodologies and practices in his scholarly pursuits. He maintains that the advent of digital technologies is changing and challenging the ways historians practice their craft, allowing them to present, collect, and store information in new ways that help give fresh insights to historical questions and serve as a means to reach wider audiences.
