Hi, I’m Jason Heppler, a historian of modern America studying the environment, cities, and politics. I am a developer-scholar at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media and a member of the Department of History and Art History at George Mason University. I am also a proud member of the Environmental Data & Governance Initiative.
I am currently completing a book tentatively titled The Nature of the Valley: Silicon Valley and the Transformation of American Environmental Politics for the University of Oklahoma Press.
My most recent book is Digital Community Engagement: Partnering Communities with the Academy (University of Cincinnati Press, 2020), which I co-edited with Rebecca Wingo and Paul Schadewald.
I teach classes on digital history, data science, design, visualization, and spatial history. You can find my most recent syllabi and workshops on my teaching page.
