Mapping the Past: G.I.S. Approaches to Ancient History

Keynote: “Stable Orbits or Clear Air Turbulence: Capacity, Scale, and Use Cases in Geospatial Antiquity”

Dr. Tom Elliott, ISAW/NYU; Director, Pleiades Project

Presented by the Ancient World Mapping Center at UNC-Chapel Hill.



The Ancient World Mapping Center at UNC-Chapel Hill seeks paper proposals for Mapping the Past, a conference on digital mapping and its applications to the study of ancient history.  We are looking especially for individual or collaborative projects addressing such topics as transportation and communication systems, boundaries and borderlands, G.I.S. and archaeological evidence, and the applications of G.I.S. to pedagogy and public scholarship.  Preference will be given to graduate students and junior faculty.

Interested speakers (20 minutes maximum) should submit an abstract of no more than 500 words together with a brief C.V. to awmc@unc.edu by December 15, 2015.  Those whose papers are selected will be notified in January 2016.
