About Me

I'm Eric C. Nystrom, a historian in the College of Letters and Sciences at Arizona State University. 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.
