Over the past month I surveyed 9 Twitterstorians to learn about their connection to Twitter. I am compiling their responses into a paper to situate their responses in the scholarship of digital history. The survey was very successful and informative. I was able to survey a wide variety of historians. I have attached photos of the survey questions below.
All of my respondents included their Twitter handles, so if you want to connect with any of them you are able to (just mention this project)! As you can see above, I did not ask any of their historical interests, only their current positions. Most of their Twitter bios include more information about their interests but I have included their jobs with their Twitter Handle:
Francisco Mamani-Fuentes @fmamanif – Phd student
Mary McAuliffe @MaryMcAuliffe4 – Asst Professor in Gender Studies
Amber H. Abbas @AHASouthAsia – Associate Professor of History
Ashley Preston @DrPreston1913 – Lecturer
Alexandra Nicole Hill @A_N_Hill – Professor of Humanities
Jake Newsome @wjnewsome – Educator at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
Eric Gonzaba @EGonzaba – Assistant Professor of American Studies, Cal State Fullerton
Shirley Tillotson @stillots1 – Professor emeritus, retired from Dalhousie University
Matthew Gabriele @prof_gabriele – Professor, Virginia Tech
I have attached a draft of the paper. This a draft, there are definitely some grammatical errors and sentences that will be deleted or added. I relied very heavily on quotes from the survey for this paper because I wanted to focus on the Twitterstorians’ words. Please look it over and let me know your thoughts! Thank you!
