Brad Sekedat currently teaches Upper Division writing courses for the UWP. He also has a Ph.D. in archaeology, and continues to study the Roman empire through active fieldwork in western Turkey. Some of Brad's interests in archaeology (place and landscape; how governments interact with populations; multi-vocality and the importance of materials for understanding human social life) appear as natural fits in his writing courses, where he encourages students to use writing to better understand the complexity of the world around them.
