Shawn Graham

I'm an an archaeologist and digital humanist. My work surveys the ways new media are used to construct cultural heritage knowledge, from the perspectives of practicing archaeologists, historians, and the wider public. I explore the rhetorics implicit in different ways of encoding digital tools, and the effects these have on consuming/creating archaeological and historical data.I am a Registered Professional Archaeologist, www.rpanet.org. I teach historical methods and digital history at all levels, including a graduate seminar in digital history, where the final project involves using various augmented reality platforms to tell environmental history. Currently I'm teaching a third year seminar on video games as historical artefacts and creators of a digital historical consciousness - my students blog at http://3812.graeworks.net.
