Seminar: Towards the digital squeeze

Digital Classicist/Institute for Classical Studies Work in Progress Seminar, Summer 2008

Friday 18th July at 16:30, in Stewart House B9 (between Senate House & Russell Square)
*Note room change*

Ryan Baumann (University of Kentucky)
‘Towards the Digital Squeeze: 3-D imaging of inscriptions and curse tablets’

ALL WELCOME

Creating records of inscriptions often serves multiple purposes, such as aiding interpretation, preservation, or dissemination. Traditionally, squeezes, sketches, and photographs have been the methods by which these representations have been made. This talk will explore the possibilities for epigraphic study offered by non-contact 3D digitization, which enables the ability to capture, distribute, and visualize the full geometric properties of an inscription.

The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.
