Advanced Challenges in Theory and Practice in 3D Modeling of Cultural Heritage Sites

rt A one-week institute with a follow-up workshop held over two summers, hosted by the University of Massachusetts and the University of California, Los Angeles, to consider the theoretical and ethical issues associated with three-dimensional modeling of cultural heritage sites and objects. [Edited by staff]

This joint proposal for an institute hosted by the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and the University of California, Los Angeles, builds on issues raised in an 2013 NEH Institute hosted by Arkansas State University, considering advanced problems and issues facing content creators and end users, and attempting to bridge that gap. This ten day institute would take place over two consecutive summers at UMass in 2015 and UCLA in 2016, bringing together twenty scholars working in the humanities who have research or teaching projects that would benefit from advanced discussion of theoretical issues with an impressive group of content creators working from different perspectives.
