In addition to my own twitter and this blog, I co-manage the digital presence for the Equine History Collective (EquineHistory.org and @Equine_History); The Riverside Latino Public History Project (@RsideLatinoPH); H-Net Sport (@HNet_Sport); SHOT ECIG (@SHOT_ECIG); and WHEATS 2018 (@Wheats2018).
Conference livetweeting serves the dual purpose of condensing your own notes, and making research access more democratic. It has also provided unique opportunities to continue conversations after the panel or conference has ended.
- Early Modern Collections in Use at the Huntington, Sept. 2017, especially Dániel Margócsy’s “Stables as Collections”
- Recap of my own paper at WESCS 2017, in the absence of available livetweeters.
- Discussion about student draft policies and teaching history writing.
- Discussion on H-Sport about novel exam methods.
Research & Collaboration
- Response to National Archives request.
- One of my research threads while on fellowship at the National Sporting Library.
- EHC helping direct a scholar to who can help answer their question; this is a critical goal for the Equine History Collective as an organization, and is also one of twitter’s strengths.
