A New Look at Artefacts, Archaeology and Foodways

On May the 12th and 13th, Dr Joanita Vroom will host an international expert seminar called ‘Globalviews & 3D-Perspectives: A New Look at Artefacts, Archaeology and Foodways’. The occasion of this seminar is to discuss the development of innovative, new media technologies, such as 3D visualization, 3D reconstruction and virtual reality, and the possibilities to use these technologies in museum exhibitions and museum collections in general, and in the archaeology and foodways of Late Medieval and Ottoman Turkey in particular. The inspiring outcomes of this event will be used for an upcoming exhibition (2019) at the RCAC of Koç University in Istanbul, Turkey, where archaeological objects will be exhibited in combination with displays and maps of artefacts made with 3D techniques.

Two days Two localities

  • On Friday the 12th, the seminar, with a full-day program of lectures and discussion, will take place at the Centre of Linguistics of Leiden University (Wijkplaats 4) in the city-center of Leiden.
  • On Saturday the 13th, lectures and discussion will continue at the Wereldmuseum (Willemskade 25) in Rotterdam.                                                                                             

I cook, therefore I am

Hereafter, we would like to invite you to a food-related exhibition in the museum, called ‘I cook, therefore I am’. Three clay tablets from Mesopotamia dating from the year 2000 BC, the oldest written culinary resource in the world, are presented in this exhibition in a very special manner. Thanks to a unique collaboration with Yale University (Yale Babylonian Collection), the designer Maaike Roozenburg was able to work alongside the TU Delft to reproduce these fragile clay tablets for the exhibition (see also her project onSmart replicas ). After the visit to the exhibition, Dr Joanita Vroom and her students will organize a ‘Taste Lab’, where one can look, taste and describe dished and drinks of Ottoman cuisine.

All are welcome to attend this international expert seminar. The full schedule will be presented shortly on the Faculty website.
