Guida Casella PhDCandidate Digital Media

My research looks at the discursive power of images in archaeology. My aim is to study through visual content analysis how an archaeological site was communicated in the past 50 years in order to understand how the "Digital Turn" remediates or disrupts the visual tradition in this specific setting. My hypothesis is that we must look to interactive documentary as a genre in order to consider it as a possible textual form in public archaeological heritage communication. By remediating traditional practices, but also incorporating the new interactive and multimedia vocabularies Digital Culture affects ways of production and consumption of cultural heritage content.

Google gives Indians a virtual ‘tryst with destiny’ on Independence Day. At midnight on August 14, 1947, India’s first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, delivered one of the great speeches of the 20th century: “Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny, and now the time comes when we shall redeem our pledge… At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom.”

Today, Google transports you back in time to those stirring moments. A Google Maps virtual tour lets you retrace the footsteps of Nehru from his oath in Parliament to the Red Fort where he unfurled the Indian flag and addressed the nation – a tradition that current prime minister Narendra Modi carries forward today.

Go Set A Watchman: read the first chapter - interactive

Over her breakfast coffee, she watched the last of Georgia’s hills recede and the red earth appear, and with it tin-roofed houses set in the middle of swept yards, and in the yards the inevitable verbena grew, surrounded by whitewashed tires. She grinned when she saw her first TV antenna atop an unpainted Negro house; as they multiplied, her joy rose. An Animated Introduction to Michel Foucault, "Philosopher of Power" Do you still need a working knowledge of the ideas of Michel Foucault to hold your own on the cocktail party circuit?

An Animated Introduction to Michel Foucault, "Philosopher of Power"

Probably not, but the ideas themselves, should you bring them up there, remain as fascinating as ever. But how, apart from entering (or re-entering) grad school, to get started learning about them? Just look above: Alain de Botton’s School of Life has produced a handy eight-minute primer on the life and thought of the controversial “20th-century French philosopher and historian who spent his career forensically criticizing the power of the modern bourgeois capitalist state.”

Perhaps that sounds like a parody of the activity of a French philosopher, but if you watch, you’ll find highlighted elements of Foucault’s grand intellectual project still relevant to us today. “His goal was nothing less than to figure out how power worked,” as de Botton puts it, “and then to change it in the direction of a Marxist-anarchist utopia.” Ti-Jean Goes Lumbering by Jean Palardy.

Palaeobotany is the study of vegetal remains (macro and micro fossils) deposited and preserved in various types of sediments. This discipline mainly focuses on the remains encountered in archaeological sites and in their surroundings. Palaeobotany includes different scientific areas: Carpology (seed studies), Anthracology (charcoal studies) and Palynology (study of pollen and other micro-remains).

The identification of plant micro and macro fossils permits the interpretation of past natural environments as well as changes in climate, sea level and coast line and the human impact on nature. The study of archaeological deposits may assist in the interpretation of important questions related to anthropogenic impact on the vegetation from agriculture (start, type, cultivated plants, etc.), the introduction of new species, collection and use of wild plants, pastures, deforestation and reforestation, among others.
