David  Jaffee

  • Title / Position: Professor and Head of New Media Research

I've been involved in lots of new media projects on the new media production side, including several collaborations with ASHP and CHNM such as History Matters, EDSITEment Lessons of History, and Picturing U.S. History. I also have been working on the pedagogy side in the scholarship of teaching and learning with various projects including the Visible Knowledge Project and also some essay writing in JAH. Lately at the BGC we've been busy incorporating new media in our material culture curriculum with the building of a new Digital Media Lab and related faculty development work. You can see the fruits of that effort in the student digital exhibition (a BGC-NYPL collaboration) I've listed that came out of a nineteenth-century material culture of New York course. Other research interests include Early American material and visual culture.
