I teach United States history and digital humanities at the University of Colorado Denver. Prior to this, I was an assistant professor of history at Northeastern University and core faculty member of the NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks. My book, Paper Trails: The US Post and the Making of the American West (Oxford University Press, 2021), presents a spatial interpretation of the nineteenth-century American state by mapping the sprawling infrastructure of the nation’s postal network. Some of my broader interests include geography, communications, gender history, and information visualization. To find out more about me, read some of my posts, follow me on Twitter, or drop me a line at cameron.blevins {at} ucdenver.edu.
