Dr. Shawn M. Graham


success! I received tenure & was promoted in 2014. I’m now Associate Professor. Irony: I ended up having to print this entire site out as pdf, to fit inside the official boxes. I’ll leave this site up as it was.

Welcome to my online dossier, ‘GRAEworks’.* This website contains evidence for my work in digital history, archaeology, digital humanities, and my teaching and service.

I am now an assistant professor in the Department of History at Carleton University, where I teach classes on digital history and its methodologies, and ancient history. I joined the department in July 2010.

I graduated from the School of Human and Environmental Sciences at the University of Reading with a PhD in Archaeology in 2002. In the intervening years I have worked professionally as a heritage consultant, a teacher, and as an entrepreneur. When I lived in the UK, I was a Member of the Institute of Field Archaeologists. In 2005/6 I was a post-doctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Classics at the University of Manitoba with Lea Stirling. I am a Registered Professional Archaeologist, a member of the Society for American Archaeology, a member of the Canadian Society for Digital Humanities, and thanks to winning the 2013 Desire2Learn Innovation Award, a member of the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.

My research interests are in digital media for research and teaching in archaeology & history; digital archaeology, public archaeology, and landscape archaeology; video games as a way of writing history; modelling social complexity, social networks analysis and the Roman economy; and accessibility issues & the digital humanities, cf http://accessibility2012.thatcamp.org.

You may view my cv here.

The navigation bar across the top tells the story of my research and teaching; please begin there. Then, please feel free to examine examples of my research and teaching output which I have organized into these major categories:

Books ||Papers || Syllabi || Digital Projects || Filesets || Simulations || Research Blogs

Please click through the titles of any entries for embedded pdfs, applets, media files, and full text.

I would like to thank Sharon Leon and Kathleen Fitzpatrick for their examples of what online portfolios can look like.
