I’m Jordan E. Taylor. I’m a historian of early North America, the Age of Revolutions, print culture, and the Atlantic world. I work at the intersection of digital and transnational approaches to the North American past. I am a Visiting Assistant Professor of History at Smith College.
I graduated with a B.A. in History from the University of Dayton in 2012 and received my Ph.D. in early American history at Indiana University–Bloomington in 2019. My dissertation, “The Page of Revolutions,” focused on Atlantic networks and North American information politics during the Age of Revolutions. It asks how people learned about revolutionary events in France, St. Domingue, Poland, the Netherlands, and elsewhere. It also explores how news from abroad shaped and defined North American politics.
I am the former Digital Projects Editor for the Journal of American History, where I founded and managed its digital publication Process.
I should not be confused with the wide receiver for the Denver Broncos or the controversial Justin Bieber impersonator of the same name.
