Greetings and welcome!
I am a historian of the Byzantine East and the Medieval West. I teach those in my classes how history has been done, and how to do history, how to re-tell the story of the past through their own questions, their own insight, their own analysis.
That is, I actively engage the intersection of “the historical past” and “the practical past” by studying and conveying the scant remains of a constructed past known as the ‘Middle Ages’ into a collage of interpretations which I then synthesize, asserting this synthesis communicates something trustworthy about past reality right to you, in our shared present. Then I do it again, differently. History: a habit of mind, a rhetorical narrative, a set of questions and ways of answering them. History: you too can create it.
If you are either a student or a colleague: come and be part of an innovative collaborative venture combining the possibilities of the ‘digital revolution’ with the resources and intellectual energy of motivated teacher-scholars:
