Faculty members to discuss technology and the classics at Faculty Work-in-Progress lecture

The next Faculty Work-in-Progress lecture will cover “The Digital Muse: Technology and the Classics.” Paul Iversen and Andrea De Giorgi, assistant professors in the Department of Classics, will discuss how classical archaeology has harnessed Geographic Information Systems (GIS) as well as how recent technologies aid the study of inscriptions on the Antikythera Mechanism—the world’s oldest known analog computer and one of the most important artifacts ever discovered for understanding ancient astronomy and engineering.

The free, public lecture will be held March 1 at 4:30 p.m. in Clark Hall 206. A reception begins at 4:15 p.m.

Registration is recommended at case.edu/humanities.
