        Subject: Videos Hestia 2 seminar Southampton

Videos and slides of presentations at the seminar 'Hestia2: exploring
spatial networks through ancient sources' held in Southampton on 18 July
2013 are now available on our website:
The Southampton Hestia2 seminar aimed to explore the potential of innovative
spatial networks and linked data techniques for research and work in the
higher education, public and cultural heritage sectors. It attracted an
audience with diverse backgrounds and discussions really benefited from
this. The seminar is part of Hestia2, a public engagement project aimed at
introducing a series of conceptual and practical innovations to the spatial
reading and visualisation of texts. Following on from the AHRC-funded
initiative 'Network, Relation, Flow: Imaginations of Space in Herodotus's
Histories' (Hestia  http://www.open.ac.uk/Arts/hestia/  ), Hestia2
represents a deliberate shift from experimenting with geospatial analysis of
a single text to making Hestia's outcomes available to new audiences and
widely applicable to other texts through a seminar series, online platform,
blog and learning materials with the purpose of fostering knowledge exchange
between researchers and non-academics, and generating public interest and
engagement in this field.
More info on Hestia2, future seminars and online resources can be found on
our new website: http://hestia.open.ac.uk/ 
Looking forward to seeing you at one of our future seminars!
