Daniel Gorman Jr
I study U.S. religious and cultural history in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, with particular interests in Spiritualism, intellectual writing about religion, political movements, and urban religious life. The digital humanities offer new ways to tell the stories of religious Americans, share endangered primary documents with the public, and destabilize historical narratives that long equated "Protestant" with "American."
I was a 2018–20 HASTAC Scholar. Midway through my HASTAC tenure, I received a 2019–21 Andrew W. Mellon Digital Humanities Fellowship, as part of the Mellon Foundation-funded digital humanities training program at the University of Rochester.
