Real People in the Ancient World and the Real People Who Study Them: A New Open-Access Digital Pedagogy Platform for Teaching about the Past

Pixellating is a monthly Digital Humanities (DH) mixer. It is an opportunity for DH scholars and students from across campus to meet colleagues, talk tools, brainstorm ideas and network with others who use digital tools to explore and visualize their research. This month we will be featuring a project showcase with time for a Q&A afterward.

This project showcase will discuss the new educational platform, "Peopling the Past", managed by a team of archaeologists, historians, and art historians working on various aspects of the ancient Mediterranean and Middle Eastern worlds. Peopling the Past (PtP) produces open-access material on the ancient world in the form of short videos, podcasts, and blogs through a central web platform and various social media channels. PtP aims to highlight aspects of human history often omitted from more traditional curricula, and which are vital for fostering inclusive and socially just scholarship and teaching. Furthermore, through mobilizing the voices of a diverse group of scholars, many in the early stages of their career and from underrepresented groups, PtP seeks to amplify a much greater diversity of voices in academia.
