UNC Chapel Hill Department of Art and Art History: Timothy Shea: “Fictive Funerary Landscapes? Mourning Scenes on Athenian Funerary Vessels in Context”


( Tue., Oct. 20, 2020 )

Online, , , NC

Program

 In this talk, Tim Shea engages with this long-running debate by utilizing digital mapping software to analyze the find locations of the few funerary monuments that survive from 460-420 BCE in relation to the excavated remains of pottery workshops where these vessels were likely produced. He also tracks the distribution of vessels across burial deposits in Athens and the wider Mediterranean to consider the effect of market forces on the production of these vessels. We encourage anyone interested in implementing GIS (Geographic Information Systems) and digital mapping techniques into their research or teaching to attend.
