We might not be able to travel the world this spring but the Department of Classics has created two new spring courses to look forward to!
CLAS/VISA 3V20 Virtual Study Tour of Italy (0.5 credit)
Archaeological and art historical investigation of Etruscan and Roman Italy. Archaeological sites and museums that will be visited virtually through synchronous and asynchronous online sessions include Rome, Pompeii, Hadrian’s Villa, Cerveteri, and Tarquinia. Coursework will also involve movies and some cooking! The course will run for five weeks from early May to early June.
Restriction: Permission of the Instructor.
Contact Dr Carrie Murray for more information.
CLAS/HIST 3V70 Digital Modeling in Archaeology (0.5 credit)
Introduction to digital modeling of archaeological artifacts, alongside ethical considerations associated with their utilization. Course includes training in computer applications for processing and analysis of digital models created as part of the Marzamemi Maritime Heritage Project. If in-person contact is possible, we will also produce models locally using photogrammetry, laser scanning, and structured light scanning.
