Antwerp Cultural Heritage Sciences (ARCHES)


Piraye Hacıgüzeller's expertise broadly lies in the theory and method of digital heritage, digital archeology and digital humanities. Her theoretical interests relate to the common assumptions and power dynamics that drive and are produced by the "digital transition" within these domains.Her methodological interests are geodata and metadata technologies in the context of heritage, automatic recognition of landscape images, archaeological landscape modeling and digital representations of archaeological spaces. She works on assessments, models and reconstructions of human land use during Neolithic and Bronze Age periods in the Eastern Mediterranean, which links her to studies in Anthropocene archeology.
