VIRTUAL - Community Engagement in the Archaeology and Heritage of Pakistan: New Work at MohenjoDaro

November 4, 2022 @ 3:30 pm EDT

This is an online event.



AIA Society: Albany

Lecturer: Uzma Rizvi

The Laboratory of Integrated Archaeological Visualization and Heritage (LIAVH.org) makes connections between technology, archaeological data management, and heritage practice. For a century, MohenjoDaro has been photographed, drawn, mapped, and written about, and yet, there is still so much we cannot quite figure out about the ancient city. One of those quandaries is a stratigraphic record that can be archaeologically grounded. This project utilizes a vertical survey of extant walls at MohenjoDaro to more securely locate time and changes across time in a neighborhood. A key component of this research is pedagogic and participatory, specifically focused on building capacity through teaching and including local and regional specialists and students of archaeology. Rather than pursuing archaeology as an extractive exercise, this research engenders generative modes of knowledge production and sharing.
