About

I’m currently professor and chair of the history department at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota.  My scholarship focuses on Swedish immigration in the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-centuries, including topics such as Swedish American women, Swedish American childhood, Swedish American food and folk arts.  My CV reveals more details about my published work.  Right now much of my research is on hold, as I am chairing my department and serving as PI on a Mellon Grant to develop Digital Humanities on my campus.  Projects I want to find time for soon include a book-length study of Swedish American childhood, an updated [digital?] version of Helge Nelson’s The Swedes and Swedish Settlements in North America, and a mapping project–a “churchscape” of Clay County, Minnesota.

I periodically blog and tweet (usually about things historical, Swedish-American, or digital) and can be reached by email.

Here’s a link to the first iteration of a course on digital history:  hist325sp15.joylintelman.org/
