Please mark your calendars for this art history/digital humanities talk about Giovanni Battista Falda’s imaging of the urban fabric of 17th-century Rome by Professor Sarah McPhee, on Thursday, November 21, at 5:30, in List 110.

Sarah McPhee, an architectural historian, has worked with architects to build a virtual version of Falda’s 17th-century bird’s eye view, enriched with his many other views of the city, using a gaming platform that allows you to move through the city with a joystick discovering things about its urban makeup that one cannot sense from the map or prints alone.
