Distinguished Faculty Lecture

February 16, 2016

By , College Academic Program Coordinator 

Join us on Friday March 2nd for the Distinguished Faculty Lecture, given this quarter by Professor Elaine Sullivan of the History Department. The lecture begins at 4pm in the Fireside Lounge here at Stevenson and will be followed by a reception at the Provost's House. 

Archaeologists and historians are utilizing improving 3D technologies to create scholarly reconstructions of ancient places. These visualizations of now-disappeared spaces offer new potential for the examination of the ancient world. In this talk, Professor Sullivan will present her work on the 3D Saqqara project, a 3D visualization of the Egyptian necropolis of Saqqara. The project attempts to re-imagine the built and natural environment of the cemetery through space and time, accessing human perception and experience in past landscapes.

This event is presented by Stevenson College and co-sponsored by the History and Classical Studies Departments and the Institute for Humanities Research
