Shawn Day is an entrepreneur, digital historian, economist and student of design (blending the aesthetic and the informative). He applies digital, spatial and social network analysis to the study of the relationships between credit, respectability, and order in the Victorian community.
Introduction
Shawn Day is an entrepreneur, digital historian, economist and student of design (blending the aesthetic and the informative). 
After having relocated from Canada, Shawn has been working with the Digital Humanities Observatory, a project of the Royal Irish Academy, to assist and advise Irish humanities researchers and instructors on emerging practises in digital humanities scholarship. 
He is completing a PhD exploring the social and economic circumstances of the nineteenth century retail liquor trade and it's impact on family respectability. He applies digital, spatial and social network analysis to the study of the relationships between credit, respectability, and order in the Victorian community. 
His most recent articles have examined the social dimensions of the Victorian public mental hospital using GIS and statistical modeling tools
Shawn has been involved in a number of successful and innovative digital humanities projects in both Canada and Ireland. Most recently he has worked with large manuscript census databases in the 1871/1891 census project (University of Guelph). He is a team member of the national TAPoR text analysis portal project and the Network for Canadian History and the Environment (NiCHE).
Shawn has blended his background in management economics with an entrepreneurial ethos to found a number of successful software development ventures in Canada and to find a means to leverage this experience in the academic arena.
