Envisioning Digital and Invisible Landscapes in Italy
Everyone is invited to attend this lecture. The analysis,documentation,and interpretation of multistratified landscapes embraces a 4D vision even of contemporary societies, raising new social and cultural questions about past, present, and future. For example, in many cases land subdivision, urbanism, agricultural practices, and uses of environmental resources reflect the past and help us to better understand how to approach human and natural relations with current landscapes.This seminar will be focused on the study, analysis, and interpretation of the archaeological landscape and environment with a digital multidisciplinary approach that is able to integrate environmental and spatial sciences, computing, history and archaeology. At the end Professors Campana and Forte will also introduce interested students to the Duke in Tuscany Program for 2014: a 4 week study abroad program for undergraduate students which focuses on digital landscapes (May 25 through June 21, 2014).
