Welcome

My name is Jason Heppler and I am a digital historian in the Department of History at Stanford University. You can get in touch with me at jason@jasonheppler.org. This is my open research notebook which contains notes of my ongoing research projects. The best places to start are:

  • Recent activity: listing the most recent additions to the notebook
  • All pages: see all pages in the notebook alphabetically

Also, check out the project tabs along the lefthand side. You can follow my Zotero library for recent items, and I also maintain GitHub repositories for other work related to my research and scholarship.
