Ross Mulcare About Archive CV

Hi, I’m Ross. I’m a PhD candidate in history at Harvard University, where I study the relationships between people and the environment. My dissertation, “Feeding Kansas: Famine and Relief in Contested Territory,” examines the political, economic, and environmental contexts of a drought and famine in 1860 Kansas Territory.

I’m also interested in digital humanities. I believe it’s critical for historians to use technology in creative and useful ways in order to stay relevant.

I have a blog where I write about the past, present, and future. I can be reached at or on twitter at @mulcare.
