Beyond Indiana Jones: Digital Storytelling in Archaeology

February 8, 2019 @ 8:00 pm EST

Stanford University, Packard 101
350 Serra Mall
Stanford, CA 94305 United States

AIA Society: Stanford

Lecturer: Tiffany Earley-Spadoni

Popular films and video games featuring beloved characters such as Indiana Jones and Lara Croft frequently portray archaeologists engaged in poor professional practices. While such depictions may inspire interest in the field, they do little to show what archaeologists actually do and how they do it. However, multimedia accounts of archaeology have improved in recent years as archaeologists have increasingly become engaged in multimedia projects. This lecture will provide an overview of the state-of-the-art in digital storytelling as well as describe specific multimedia initiatives being deployed by Earley-Spadoni in her active field project, the Vayot Dzor Fortress Landscapes Project, in Armenia.
