Digital Engagement in Archaeology
21 September 2012
The Institute will host the Digital Engagement in Archaeology conference on 8-9 November and registration is now open for the event.
This conference will focus and enrich the current debate about digital public engagement in archaeology in two ways:
- from a theoretical and methodological view point, by including papers that shed light on possible frameworks for understanding, practicing and evaluating digital participation in archaeology by non-specialist audiences.
- with presentations suggesting specific and tested strategies through which archaeologists working in different areas of the sector (museums and sites, academia, and commercial archaeology) may engage the non-specialist public.
The conference is being organised under the auspices of the Archaeology and Communication Research Network (ACRN) and the Centre for Audio-Visual Study and Practice in Archaeology (CASPAR).
