New Approaches and Paradigms in the Study of Greek Architecture

3-5 November 2016

“New Approaches and Paradigms in the Study of Greek Architecture”. An International Conference hosted by the ASCSA.

Organized by Philip Sapirstein and David Scahill.

Recent scholarship has challenged in a fundamental way our understanding of Greek architecture, ranging from rethinking individual monuments and construction techniques to reassessing whole categories of buildings. Concurrently, a wide array of new digital technologies—developed recently and tested in various contexts for archaeological fieldwork, site management, and spatial analysis—promises to transform the way in which architectural historians examine their material.

This conference/workshop brings together archaeologists and architectural historians to present their most challenging ideas alongside researchers who have used digital techniques to enhance the way they approach the preservation and analysis of ancient architecture. The papers will address “new approaches and paradigms” and include results from recent fieldwork, pure research, methodological critiques, and innovative digital approaches to the study of ancient architecture.

Attendance is free and open to the public.
