Jo Guldi is the author of Roads to Power, What Is the Spatial Turn?, and, with David Armitage, The History Manifesto. She codesigned Paper Machines, software for the distant reading of large-scale textual corpora, and teaches at Brown University, where she is Hans Rothfels Assistant Professor of Modern Britain and Its Empire. Her research interests include the spatial dimension of human experience and landscape history and its intersection with political economy and problems of social justice and economic inequality. She is working on a history of international land reform movements since 1830, one chapter of which, “A History of the Participatory Map,” will be published in early 2016 in Public Culture.
