Schedule for CDH digital tool and resource releases, spring 2022  

Friday 1 April: In collaboration with SHFA 

Three digital tools will be presented that have been developed primarily for archeological research. The Topography Visualization Toolbox , a tool for visualizing small topographical variations in 3D scans of rock art carvings. We will also demonstrate a mobile app to visualize and digitally accentuate historical layers in rock carvings using Augmented Reality. 

Voyager, a simulation tool that can be used to simulate possible vessel routes during long sea voyages in predictable weather conditions or that can be used to determine their probable length and seasonal dependence.

Friday 6 May: Resources for African languages 

The Somali Prosody Database has been developed with Morgan Nilsson at the Department of Languages and Literatures and makes available the research data collected during the Somali and Prosodic Typology project  (Swedish Research Council 2016-2019). Furthermore, plans are presented for digital resources that will be developed for two ongoing research projects funded by the Swedish Research Council 2022-2024. In the project How do words get in order? The role of speaker-hearer interaction in languages of southern Africa led by Eva-Marie Bloom Ström at the Department of Philosophy, Linguistics and Theory of Science, does CDH contribute to the development of a multimodal corpus for xhosa and in the project Reading the Signs: Renaming and transformative processes in urban Rwanda under the leadership of Tove Rosendal at the Department of Languages and Literatures, CDH will develop an image and map interface that can visualize the impact of a Rwandan language reform on the capital Kigali's urban landscape. 

Time: 15:15–16:00 followed by reception & mingle 

Location: Room J303, Humanisten
