Reconstructing Sites of Ancient Greek Oratorical Performance in Virtual Reality

Overview

Visualizing Ancient Greek Rhetoric

This project is part of a long-term study to catalog and classify structures from the late Archaic, Classical, and Hellenistic periods (ca. 500-100 BCE) that staged performances of political and legal oratory. The IV/LAB is working with Richard Graff (Writing Studies) and collaborators at Pennsylvania State University to visualize ancient rhetoric as situated verbal performances and to better understand how the physical settings structured and constrained the interactions that took place in them. In the early stages of the project, visualizing 3D models of Greek speaking sites life-size in virtual reality using a large, head-tracked stereoscopic display has already proven to be useful in evaluating the accuracy of site reconstructions. Current work includes animated real-time simulation of oral performance, acoustical simulation, and more.
