Sharon Howard


My research background is mainly in early modern history, history of crime and women's history. I've been working as a digital history project manager/researcher at the University of Sheffield since 2006. Projects I've managed include the Old Bailey Online and Connected Histories.

I've been running digital history websites since c.2000 and blogging since c.2004. My most active current projects are the Early Modern Commons, a blogs aggregator for early modernists, and The Broadside, which is (attempting to be) an aggregator/resource/archive for historians using Twitter.
