Re: Editor Introductions

Hello Everyone,

My name is Nick Timmerman and I am a Ph.D. candidate at Mississippi State University in the Department of History. My research focuses on American Indian mounds in the post-Indian Removal Southeast, and how mounds are perceived in the minds and culture of America. I utilize the lenses of cultural, environmental, and southern history to tell the story of these landscapes. I am a new editor for H-Grad and look forward to being a part of this vibrant community.
