No historian is an island.
My scholarship is only possible because of the generosity and advice of colleagues, mentors, friends, and family. Community-focused work -- service, public history, and paying it forward -- is core to my practice.
Some of the communities and community-focused experiences I've had on my journey as a historian:
Founder and co-organizer, Queer@EH, an interdisciplinary network building visibility of and solidarity among LGBTQIA+ scholars across the environmental humanities
Digital content advisor: the American Yawp (a massively collaborative open U.S. history textbook)
Co-founder and co-lead, Stanford Environmental and Climate History Workshop
Department of History, Stanford University, past graduate admissions committee, United States field
Undergraduate Thesis Mentor, Department of History, Stanford University
United States History Workshop, Stanford University, past graduate co-facilitator
Presentations of community-based research at community museums in the Bay Area: the Japanese American Museum of San Jose and the San Mateo County History Museum
Invited to provide historical expertise for Redwood City, California area memorialization and public art projects on Japanese American community history
