conference session - Technologies for the Digital Humanities: Applications and Concerns in 3-Dimensional Scanning of Cultural Heritage (Conference/Institute/Seminar)
Title: conference session - Technologies for the Digital Humanities: Applications and Concerns in 3-Dimensional Scanning of Cultural Heritage
Author: Jessie Ryker-Crawford
Author: J. Craig Thompkins
Abstract: The Institute of American Indian Arts was awarded a grant by the National Endowment for the Humanities, which culminated in two multi-disciplinary courses for both the Museum Studies and New Media Arts departments. These courses teach students how to 3-D scan cultural objects with laser scanning and photogrammetry techniques. The possibilities through the application of these two techniques for tribal institutions and communities are amazing and ground-breaking, and should be embraced with some care and diligence. For although it will allow our objects to "return" to the communities from which they emerged in order to be utilized in a variety of educational and cultural ways, the dissemination of this data must be carefully guarded as well. This panel will first present the amazing work that the IAIA students have done in scanning the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts' collection pieces, and then will move into a heart-felt discussion on the issues and concerns on how these and other technologies could have upon our cultural property rights. We look forward to fully sharing the 3D scanning techniques in a pre-conference workshop at the IAIA campus, and then we hope to dialogue together in order to be prepared to utilize technology within our own uniquely strong and knowledgeable culturally-based philosophies and ethics.

Abstract: Course Description: Digital technologies are cultural constructs and therefore can be purposefully used to transform our methods of relating and transmitting humanities content and culture to our audiences and to future generations. Instead of allowing digital technologies to shape our cultures and identity, we can shape our digital tools to better preserve, present, inform, and sustain our cultural heritages...the Software Applications for the Digital Humanities Special Topics course will introduce students to the use of emerging digital technologies in the archiving and presentation/display of cultural, visual, material, and intellectual property. Students will explore innovative ways in which digital technologies can be adapted to interact with cultural objects, such as creating condition reports of the objects. This course will engage key humanities content areas, including conservation, archives, Native American studies, and museum history.
