Ledio Hysi lands job combining archaeology and digital humanities

Ledio Hysi (MA Classical Archaeology 2017) has landed a great job that combines his interests in archaeology and digital humanities: research assistant for Lithodomos VR, a company in Melbourne, Australia, whose mission is to bring the ancient world to life for everyone through “educational, entertaining, engaging, awe-inspiring virtual reality experiences.” Ledio will be checking the content of their VR productions against the archaeological remains.

 

Ledio credits the training he received for his MA in Classical Archaeology at FSU: “The untiring support and depth of training from the Classics department's elite faculty provided the foundations for me to combine archaeology and technology in a truly unique way. Between the Langadas scholarship that funded training to perform underwater excavations and the courses and field work with brilliant faculty that enhanced my technical repertoire via introduction to the digital humanities, the opportunities given to me by the department have been an indispensable part of my training as a historian and archaeologist.”
