Shawn Malley is Professor in the Department of English, Bishop's University, Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada. He is author of 'From Archaeology to Spectacle in Victorian Britain: The Case of Assyria, 1845-1854' (Ashgate Press, 2012).
'[A] provocative and fastidiously researched monograph... Invoking
such heavy-hitters as Roland Barthes, Jean Baudrillard, and Homi
Bhabha, Excavating the Future is best for scholars or advanced
students already acquainted with a fair amount of theory.
Nevertheless, Malley maps rich territory at the intersection of
literature, media studies, history, and geopolitics.'
