Hanna R Shell
Shell is a historian, filmmaker and media scholar who combines digital media creation with the history of science, critical theory & historiography, film and media history, public history & museum studies and documentary studies. She has taught lecture, seminar and media production courses at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), MIT and at Harvard College. She received an M.A. in American Studies from Yale University in 2002, was a Film Study Center Fellow at Harvard (2003-2005) and will be granted her Ph.D. in the History of Science from Harvard in 2007. Shell's digital films and installations explore the interwoven themes of media, technology, history and aesthetics that are also brought to the fore in her work in the classroom.
