Mark Tebeau

Arizona State University
Associate Professor, Public History
An urban, public, and digital historian, Mark Tebeau has directed more than two dozen digital humanities, oral history, and public history projects.

In March 2020, Tebeau co-created and co-directs A Journal of the Plague Year: An Archive of Covid-19, an international curatorial consortium that is building a crowdsourced digital archive documenting the pandemic. With attention to silences evident in traditional archives, JOTPY is connecting and linking data drawn from around the United States and the world into an archive that will help present and future researchers understand this tenuous moment.

Tebeau leads the development of Curatescape a framework for mobile publishing that seeks to make open-source and/or low-cost hosted mobile tools available to scholars and curators. With funding from the NEH Office of Digital Humanities, Curatescape is being used by more than 20 cultural organizations, universities, and heritage preservation organizations to curate landscapes and museums. Projects include Salt River Stories, Cleveland Historical (which Tebeau co-directs), Spokane Historical, Baltimore Heritage, New Orleans Historical, Explore Kentucky, and Connecticut Communities.

Prior to joining Arizona State University in 2013, Tebeau directed the Center for Public History + Digital Humanities at Cleveland State University. Tebeau and the center collected more than 1200 oral histories that explore the history of the Northeast Ohio region.
As an urban historian, Tebeau’s first book, "Eating Smoke: Fire in Urban America, 1800-1950" (Johns Hopkins, 2003) examined how urban residents physical and metaphorically constructed American cities in response to the risk of fire. He is now completing a book that explores the history of public gardens, monuments, and public art through the lens of the Cleveland Cultural Gardens.
