Steve Marti specializes in the study of identity in British settler societies. His dissertation examined the relationship between communal mobilization and identity in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand during the First World War. By focusing on the exchanges between communities and civil or military authorities in the donation of funds or materials, Steve’s dissertation highlights how constructions of race and ethnicity determined which communities were authorized to make visible contributions to the war effort.
Steve’s interest in digital history began early in his PhD, when he audited a number of introductory programming courses. His digital research focuses primarily on the methods of collecting and analyzing digitized historical documents, but his professional curiosity has led him to explore topics such as GIS and 3-D printing, and the application of these methods in the classroom.
