I am historian of modern Latin America. I am an economic historian, and I am for want of a better term, a digital historian.
I wrote a book about financial networks in Yucatan, Mexico in the nineteenth century, and am working on another one about credit associations. My current projects are collaborative and digital, and in some cases, virtual.
I use digital tools to teach, and I teach online.
I encourage the use of laptops, tablets and anything else that is helpful.
With the help of colleagues I created learning game called Digital Zombies, that is also an ongoing digital project that combines research methods, digital literacy and critical thinking.
I am currently a collaborator on projects that develop virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) modules for instruction, and that explore how VR will change how we teach and how we think.
