Mellon Fellows Digital Humanities Lunch

November 21, 2019

Please join us for a discussion with Thomas Garrison, Assistant Professor of Anthropology, Ithaca College

12–2 PM, December 6, 2019

Douglass Commons

Community Room, 407

University of Rochester River Campus

Note: This event will take place at Douglass Commons, instead of Rush Rhees Library.

Thomas Garrison is an archaeologist at Ithaca College who uses LiDAR – a laser-based remote sensing technology – to uncover lost Mayan cities beneath the jungle canopies of Guatemala. By digitally removing the forest cover, Garrison has ‘excavated’ more than 60,000 ruins, revealing massive habitations and changing our understanding of how the Maya lived, built, and altered the landscape. His work has repeatedly appeared in National Geographic, which has funded some of his fieldwork. He’ll discuss his interdisciplinary and multinational project and its place within the digital humanities.

 

Please share this invitation with colleagues, students, and collaborators. Lunch will be provided. We look forward to seeing you!
