About Mark Tebeau
I blog and tweet as urbanhumanist. My research explores history, landscape, and place. Of course, politics, life, and occasionally family are fair game as well. And, broadly, this online journal reflects the random and digressive thinking of a scholar seeking digital bliss. Ostensibly, urbanhumanist integrates the perspectives of public history, digital humanities, and interpretive scholarship, but more likely, itâ€™s disjointed, self-indulgent drivel. Email at mtebeau at gmail dot com or tweet at urbanhumanist.
In my courses, I use the regional urban environment as a research laboratory in my courses. In conjunction with undergraduates, regional teachers, and colleagues, I developed a website devoted to the history Cleveland Cultural Gardens. Along with my colleagues at the Center for Public History and Digital Humanities, I have created Cleveland Historical, a nifty mobile smartphone app.
Our goal here is to promote collaboration, openness, and dialogues across the urban trenches of Cleveland.
