A study day on Digital Mapping and Digital Humanities research on the landscape around Rome in the Classical, Early Modern and Modern periods will be held at the British School at Rome on 29th September. Organsied by Katrina Grant (CDHR) with colleagues from the University of Melbourne and the British School at Rome. This day of presentations revolves around the project 'Digital Cartographies of the Roman Campagna' a collaboration between the Katrina Grant (CDHR) and Mitchell Whitelaw (SoAD) at the Australian National University, Lisa Beaven at the University of Melbourne, and Valerie Scott at the British School at Rome. The project examines the relationship between artistic depictions of the Roman Campagna (the flat plains of the countryside around Rome more or less coinciding with the modern region of Lazio today) and the place itself, in the context of ecology, climate change, disease and social history from 1600 to 1900.
