Richard Cullen Rath is Associate Professor of History at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. He is the author of How Early America Sounded (Cornell University Press, 2003) and is currently working on two books, one an introduction to the history of hearing and the other comparing the rise of print culture in the eighteenth-century Atlantic world to the rise of internet culture today. He has also written three award-winning articles on music, creolization, and African American culture. Recently he has published articles on the sonic dimensions of wampum, media, and the senses in the Enlightenment, and the open source digital future of the humanities. In addition to writing, he is presently leading a collaborative digital arts and humanities initiative at the University of Hawai‘i. Rath is also a musician who has found ways to use music to “do” history and American studies whenever possible.
