Dr. Gill receives NEH grant
Dr. Alyson A. Gill, Art History, recently received formal notification from the National Endowment for the Humanities that a collaborative project between ASU and Coastal Carolina University has been funded through a new NEH initiative, the Digital Humanities Start-up grant. The award is $30,000 and will fund the 18-month collaboration, Ashes2Art: Virtual Reconstructions of Ancient Monuments. An innovative interdisciplinary concept, Ashes2Art combines art history, archaeology, graphic design, web design, 3-D animation, and digital photography to recreate ancient sites and monuments online. Faculty and students conduct focused research on specific monuments, visit the sites, shoot high-resolution digital panoramas, write essays summarizing scholarly opinions based on published archaeological reports, and document those sources with extended bibliographies. Immersive 3-D models are built and posted online, utilizing many technologies. The NEH funding provides travel funds for the project directors to go to Delphi, Greece in 2007 and to several sites in Turkey in 2008. The funding also covers travel to the Getty Institute to use the institute's library resources.
