Who Am I?

I’m Timothy Burke, Professor of History at Swarthmore College, which has kindly hosted this blog. (My thanks in particular to my colleagues in Information Technology Services and the Library who have given me so much useful advice about this project.)

I’m a specialist in the history of southern Africa, but I also work in cultural history generally and on digital culture and the digital humanities, most particularly on computer and video games. Since 2003, I’ve also published a weblog called Easily Distracted.
