About Me

I'm Eric C. Nystrom, Associate Professor of History in the College of Integrative Science and Arts at Arizona State University. With Susan E. Gray, I am Co-Director of ASU Public History. Prior to joining ASU, I was an Associate Professor in the History Department at the Rochester Institute of Technology. My research focus is the history of American engineering and technology, especially late 19th and early 20th century mining. I am also interested in public history, legal history, and the use of open-source digital tools for historical analysis.

On this site you will find blog posts on a variety of historical topics, as well as my abbreviated CV, outlines of my research and teaching, and details about the site. Please feel free to contact me.
