May 4-5, 2022: Lectures at the congress Humanism and Digitization

May 4-5, 2022: the "Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore" in Milano (Italy) organized a congress entitled Humanism and Digitization: Theory and Practical Achievements, focused on a dialogue between scholars of different fields discussing about the relationship between "humanism" and "digitization", considering digital humanism under a philosophical, archaeological, historical, and technological perspective.
On the second day (Thursday, May 5), the focus was concentrated on the discussion of practical applications of technology and digitality to archaeology, moving from a round table on Giorgio Buccellati's volume A Critique of Archaeological Reason (Cambridge University Press 2017).
At this venue, on May 4, Prof. Giorgio Buccellati gave a lecture on the topic "Umanesimo digitale. I frammenti in-discorso con il tutto"; on May 5, Prof. Giorgio Buccellati and Prof. Marilyn Kelly-Buccellati presented a paper entitled "Digitalità naturale dell'archaeologia".

September 22, 2021: Lecture by Giorgio Buccellati and Marilyn Kelly-Buccellati (Madrid)

On September 22, 2021 (Wednesday), Prof. Giorgio Buccellatia and Prof. Marilyn Kelly-Buccellati delivered a lecture on new approaches on investigating Mesopotamian and biblical religion. The central idea is to show how a "blank"site can serve a purpose that goes beyond the standard of providing information in the form of databases. It is the notion of "digital discourse", that makes the most of the potential of the digital medium by implementing a multi-linear narrative. The approach (proposed by G. Buccellati in A Critique of Archaeological Reason, Cambridge 2017, with companion CAR "blank"site) will be exemplified through three "blank"sites to be illustrated in the first part of the round table. Respondents will then consider the proposal from three different points of view.
The flyer of the conference is available online.
An interview to Prof. Giorgio Buccellati and Prof. Marilyn Kelly-Buccellati, granted after this conference, can be read at the following link.

November 11, 2020: Lecture Urkesh beyond Urkesh: Community and Digitality

On November 11, 2020, Profs. Marilyn Kelly-Buccellati and Giorgio Buccellati, with the participation of many other collaborators of AVASA and of the Tell Mozan/Urkesh Archaeological Project, have given a virtual lecture on the past, present and future of Urkesh.
This event, which was part of the Bulletin of Near Eastern Excavations and Research organized by the Center for Ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern Studies (CAMNES) in Florence, has shown the multifaceted aspects of the community archaeology which are currently ongoing across the world, all focusing on the archaeological site of Urkesh. Thanks to the effort of our archaeologist in the field, the guard of the site and two more collaborators in situ, it has even been possible to arrange a "live tour" on the monumental staircase (further information) and the storage room of the Expedition House, in Tell Mozan.
The lecture is now fully available on the organizer's YouTube channel, at this link.
