Shen Swartout - Class of 2018

DHi CLASS Scholar, Hamilton College

Shen Swartout '18 is a history major and government minor from Denver, Colorado. Her primary area of interest concerns the history of religions. Shen works with Professor Wilson of the history department to further develop his website "The Autumnal Sacrifice to Confucius" as a continuation of his study of the cult of Confucius and Confucian ritual. In her time with the DHi, she hopes to establish valuable skills related to videography and 3D modeling. Such skills, along with the ever-evolving world of Digital Humanities, will enhance the ways in which she can apply her love of history to her time at Hamilton and beyond.
