Audio Visual Methods in Archaeology and Heritage Studies (6-13 October)
The Netherlands Institute at Athens in collaboration with the Faculty of Archaeology of Leiden University, the International Institute of Social Studies of Erasmus University Rotterdam and the Centre for Global Heritage and Development of Leiden University organizes this intensive one-week course in Athens for last years-BA, Master and PhD students in archaeology and heritage studies. A number of scholarships will be available for accepted students.
No doubt, audio visual applications are nowadays broadly used in heritage – and museum studies, fostering the communication between researchers and visitors and the promotion of heritage sites and museum collections. Furthermore, as digital media become increasingly affordable and accessible, visual representation is expanding across several dimensions in archaeology, becoming a prominent tool of analysis within the discipline. By discussing the available methodological tools and reflecting critically on their application within urban or rural contexts, we are focusing on how such tools can be incorporated into our research. Students will be learning how to make use of audio-visual methods in one of the most interesting urban landscapes of Europe, in order to produce multimedia works, like short-clip films, featuring alternative archaeological narratives.
All teaching will be in English.
