El seminari reunirà especialistes de diferents països del món per reflexionar sobre els valors, els interessos i la idea d’història en les reconstruccions virtuals en arqueologia.

La xerrada serà en anglès.

Resum: Under the title Behind the Pixel: Practices and Concepts in Virtual Archaeology, this workshop will bring together an international group of researchers in History and Cultural Heritage to explore the understandings of the past behind Virtual Reality (VR) uses in the historical disciplines. Since the 1990’s, VR has increased exponentially its role as a tool to disseminate and investigate the past. However, the values and interests behind virtual reconstructions have been rarely explored. In fact, objectivity has been often assumed as a major value of VR, which has reinforced the traditional Western hegemonic notion of historical processes. Biases such as gender, race, class, heterosexism, eurocentrism and others -which have been long analysed in other domains of the disciplines- are thus awaiting critique in VR. It is our ambition that this workshop will constitute a step towards such new approaches.

L’assistència és oberta a tothom, prèvia inscripció.
