Digital Humanities and Ritual Space

19-21 October 2018, Rethymnon, Crete

The second international meeting of the Unlocking Sacred Landscapes (UnSaLa) network, will be held from 19-21 October 2018 in the Laboratory of Geophysical-Satellite Remote Sensing and Archaeo-environment (Melissinou & Nikiforou Foka 130) at Rethymnon, Crete.

The meeting will focus on digital approaches both to ritual space and to artefacts relating to ritual practice and cult. The terms ritual and cult are used broadly to include sanctuaries, temples, and churches, as well as the domestic and funerary spheres of life.

The conference will examine subjects such as:

(1) inter- and intra-site Geographic Information System (GIS) approaches and spatial statistics and modelling of ritual space and/or its associated material assemblages,

(2) digitisation and virtual reconstruction of ritual space and/or its associated material assemblages,

(3) remote sensing\aerial\satellite approaches to ritual space,

(4) other computational methods and developments (e.g. space syntax and 3D modelling) applied to ritual space and/or its associated material assemblages,

(5) digital approaches to culture heritage management and culture heritage studies of ritual space and/or its associated material assemblages,

(6) digital approaches to phenomenological, performative and experiential analyses related to ritual space and/or its associated material assemblages.

There will be a registration fee (60 euros) to cover coffee-breaks, one dinner, and an excursion on 21st of October.
