Scholars’ Lab Speaker Series: Shawn Graham Practical Necromancy: Simulation and Agent Based Modeling in the Humanities

In March, Dr. Shawn Graham, Assistant Professor of Digital Humanities in the Department of History at Carleton University, spoke about using agent based simulations to understand aspects of Greco-Roman antiquity.

Summary: Raising the dead presents certain difficulties, but computation suggests a way forward. In Practical Necromany, Dr. Graham discusses the use of agent based simulations to understand aspects of Greco-Roman antiquity, its perils and potentials, and how all of this fits into a worldview informed by the digital humanities.

As always, you can listen to (or subscribe to) our podcasts on the Scholars’ Lab blog, or on iTunesU.
