About Adam Arenson

Adam Arenson researches the history and memory of North America, and the global nineteenth century, including the cultural and political history of slavery, Civil War, and Reconstruction, as well as the development of cities--from California to the Yukon Territory, from the province of Ontario to St. Louis to El Paso.
In his urban-studies research and teaching, he reconstructs how residents made sense of their surroundings, using digital-history methods to supplement the written record with material-culture findings and geographic information system (GIS) analysis.
