About

I am an assistant professor of history at Northeastern University and core faculty member of the NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks studying digital history and the nineteenth-century United States. I received my Ph.D. from Stanford University, where I worked at the Spatial History Project and Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA), after which I was a postdoctoral fellow in Rutgers University’s history department and the Rutgers Center for Historical Analysis. My current project, Gossamer Network, under contract with Oxford University Press, 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 c.blevins {at} northeastern.edu.
