Historians and archaeologists, heritage scholars and professionals routinely focus  on  the digital transduction and rendering of text and artefacts when discussing the digitization of the heritage sector. Repositories, databases, 3D artifacts, immersive environments, interactive maps, and computer games are  but some of the ways in which the past is currently reproduced and conveyed. But the implications of this digital turn for those outside the academy have yet to be fully appreciated and analyzed.  This volume aims to further this conversation. 

 

We seek contributions for a volume of essays focused on bridging theory, method  and digital practice within the broader heritage sector. The volume aims at charting and analysing the role of digital technology in the research, education and public dissemination and citizen science of the archaeo-cultural repository of Europe and the wider Mediterranean region from the beginning of the Bronze Age (c. 3000 BCE) up to the present. 

 

We gladly accept contributions from both scholars and practitioners working from across and between geographic and historical boundaries. Those working outside of North America and Western Europe are especially encouraged to send abstracts.

 

Please submit an abstract of no more than 500 words, including bibliographic notes, to futureforthepast@gmail.com  by 1 July 2021. Selected contributors will be notified by 1 August 2021. Final contributions must be submitted by 1 February 2022.
