The development of curriculum and resources for a new certificate in textual science, focused on cultural heritage recovery.

How should the humanities respond to the dual threat posed by global warming and terrorism to cultural heritage worldwide? Are the imaging technologies developed to recover the Archimedes palimpsest and restore lost works to the canon enough to safeguard the future of the past? Is science alone the answer? Textual Science: A Curriculum for Cultural Heritage Recovery offers a two-fold solution. First, it defines a new discipline combining the traditional skills of the humanistic scholar – paleography, codicology, bibliography – with imaging-, material-, and computer science. Second, drawing on the traditional strengths in optics, imaging, and humanities of both the University of Rochester and Rochester Institute of Technology, whose scholars are at the forefront of cultural heritage imaging, this proposal aims to formalize a curriculum for Textual Science through a joint UR – RIT certificate program for undergraduates at the 22 institutions of the Rochester Area Colleges consortium.
