Shelley E. Rose (shelley.rose@csuohio.edu) is Assistant Professor of History and Director of Social Studies at Cleveland State University. She earned her BA in history and secondary education at Western New England University and her MA and PhD at Binghamton University (SUNY).  She recently published an article “Place and Politics at the Frankfurt Paulskirche” in the Journal of Urban History and her 2011 article “The Penumbra of Weimar Politics” appeared in Peace & Change.  She is currently working on a book manuscript Gender and the Politics of Peace: Cooperative Activism and Transnational Networks on the German Left, 1921-1983 that examines gendered conceptualizations of peace as “feminine” compared to assumptions that militarism and war are historically “masculine.”  In 2014, she was named to the advisory board of the Cleveland State University Center for Public History + Digital Humanities and is expanding her focus on protest movements to include geospatial analysis with the digital humanities pilot project, Protest Spaces: Peace Movements in the United States and Germany, 1920-2000.  Her digital humanities interests also include a range of teaching and historical thinking initiatives, including History Speaks: Using Oral History to Teach Historical Thinking and the CSU Social Studies Program Blog: Social Studies @ CSU. For more information on her projects see http://shelleyrose.org/.
