Oratorical Performance Space in Ancient Greece: Digital Reconstruction and Interpretive Visualization
Tuesday, February 26, 3:00 p.m., Walter Library 125

Richard Graff, Writing Studies & Literacy and Rhetorical Studies, University of Minnesota
Daniel Keefe, Computer Science and Engineering & Interactive Visualization Lab, University of Minnesota

This talk will present findings from a long-term collaborative and interdisciplinary study of the physical settings of ancient Greek oratorical performance. In addition to providing interpretive synthesis of the archaeological and literary evidence for the relevant structures, the project has utilized both traditional and emergent research methods to elucidate the ways their design organized the communicative (inter)actions that took place within them. The presentation will focus on the 3D digital reconstruction and visualization methods being developed in the UM Interactive Visualization Lab.  It will demonstrate how these tools are being employed to identify salient architectural-spatial and acoustical variables in a selection of Greek civic structures, and to assess their suitability as venues for speaking, seeing, and hearing. 

Note: This presentation with demo will take place in Walter Library 125, the LCSE-MSI Visualization Laboratory (LMVL) of the Minnesota Supercomputing Institute.
