Jem Tari

I am a first year graduate student pursuing a Master’s in Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology.

I received my undergraduate degree in Philosophy from University College London and have, recently, been studying as an unclassified student at UBC as a requirement for my graduate acceptance.

I returned to university after many years in the technology sector as a project and program manager and management consultant. Working with my supervisor Professor Kevin Fisher, I am passionate about leveraging technology to increase the accessibility of historical information, to both academic and non-academic audiences.

My research interests are varied but include digital archaeology, the early Mediterranean and issues around epistemology and approaches to archaeological knowledge.  I have recently returned from an excavation in Sicily under Professor Roger Wilson and I am currently a teaching assistant for Professor Gregg Gardner on RELG 101, an introductory course on Abrahamic religions.
