The overall aim of this 1.5 day colloquium is to gain a better-integrated view of the cognitive processes involved in the interpretation of ancient textual artefacts as well as to develop ways of supporting them and facilitating them digitally.
The colloquium will be articulated around the five following main themes:
- Materiality and visual perception
- Kinaesthetic engagement in reading
- Word identification
- Structural knowledge and context
- Creativity and collaboration
In each session, at least one speaker from the Humanities (in particular Palaeography, Papyrology, Archaeology, and Oriental Studies) and one speaker from the Cognitive Sciences will present aspects of their work relevant to one of the themes above.
This is a joint CSAD-OeRC event, funded by AHRC through an early-career fellowship.
This event is free of charge. All welcome!
