Andrea Davis is Assistant Professor of History at Arkansas State University, where she researches the public memory and digital cultures of twentieth-century Spain. In addition to her work at the university, Andrea directs the international digital humanities project Memory and History: Transforming the Narrative of the Spanish Civil War and Francoist Dictatorship. The project pairs 300 hours of enhanced audiovisual testimonies from the Spanish Civil War Memory Project with interactive scholarship to explore how individuals negotiate subjectivities in the context of repressive regimes and construct meaning through personal memories that engage the evolving social narratives of their times. She was also a founding member of the SSHRC-supported Virtual Museum of the Spanish Civil War, Director of the Arkansas State University Undergraduate Certificate in Digital Humanities (2018-2022),  Community Lead for the NEH-supported Digital Humanities Research Institute (2018-2019), and General Editor for the Bulletin for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies (2019-2022), where she co-edited special issues on Digital Humanities (2018) and Iberian in Entangled and Transnational Contexts (2019).
