About

My name is Christopher Kingdon. I’m a 22-year old British national fascinated in the relationship of the Internet and warfare in the 21st-century. I studied History at the University of Chicago and graduated with General and Departmental Honors. My senior thesis, Behind Closed Doors: Revisiting Air Command’s ‘Lack of Moral Fiber and Waverer Disposal Policy’ and its ‘Treatment’ of Neurotic Cases, 1941-1945, was published in the 2014 edition of the Chicago Journal of History and nominated for the Karafiol Prize for Best Essay in International History.

I moderate the subreddit, /r/syriancivilwar, which crowd-sources user-generated-content on the Syrian conflict. I moderate the subreddit under the username uptodatepronto. In this Daily Beast piece, How the Syrian War Subreddit Scoops Mainstream Media by Nina Strochlic, Nina Strochlic writes about the subreddit’s work.
