How the West was Seen:

The Conquest of Space, Time and Vision

Kammen, Michael G.

Reviews in American History - Volume 31, Number 3, September 2003, pp. 406-413


The Johns Hopkins University Press 

  • Martha A. Sandweiss. Print the Legend:

Photography and the American West. New Haven: Yale University Press, 2002. xiii + 402 pp. Illustrations, notes, and index. $39.95. 

  • Rebecca Solnit. River of Shadows:

Eadweard Muybridge and the Technological Wild West. New York: Viking, 2003. 305 pp. Illustrations, notes, and index. $25.95.


With these two truly splendid and connected works, we can see the range and diversity of the historian's craft as practiced today. The Sandweiss book, written by an academic, is panoramic in its sweeping scope, narrative sequencing, and clarity of vision. The Solnit book, by an independent writer, is far more allusive and seemingly narrower in scope, yet it uses the major episodes and achievements in Muybridge's life to illuminate larger aspects of Western history in the later nineteenth century.


Solnit devotes much greater emphasis to continuities and discontinuities between then and now: how much Muybridge's work contributed to the genesis of cinema and the world of modern entertainment, yet how dramatically different his world was from ours. River of Shadows is an achievement of the creative historical imagination.

PBwiki and Camtasia - Changing the Way I Teach


College students today live in a world filled with social media and interactive technology. In my Technology Intensive IT 101 class at Bentley College, the question for me isn’t how do I teach students about new technologies– but rather, how do I teach with them?


Two software tools that have had the greatest impact on the way that I teach this course these days are PBWiki and Camtasia Studio. Both invite students to become involved in the process of creating course content, and sharing their knowledge with their classmates.

So how has PBWiki changed the way that I teach?
