         Subject: Towards the Digital Squeeze: 3-D imaging of 
inscriptions and curse tablets (seminar)

Digital Classicist/ICS Work in Progress Seminar, Summer 2008

Friday 18th July at 16:30, in Stewart House B9 (between Senate House &
Russell Square)
*Note room change*

Ryan Baumann (University of Kentucky)
'Towards the Digital Squeeze: 3-D imaging of inscriptions and curse tablets'


Creating records of inscriptions often serves multiple purposes, such as
aiding interpretation, preservation, or dissemination. Traditionally,
squeezes, sketches, and photographs have been the methods by which these
representations have been made. This talk will explore the possibilities
for epigraphic study offered by non-contact 3D digitization, which
enables the ability to capture, distribute, and visualize the full
geometric properties of an inscription.

The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.
