Booking is now live for this two-day hybrid conference on Monday 3 and Tuesday 4 June, organised by Dr Richard Cole and generously funded by the Faculty of Arts, the Institute of Greece, Rome, and the Classical Tradition, the Bristol Digital Game Lab, and the Centre for Creative Technologies. This conference takes the idea of extended reality, which typically refers to virtual, augmented, and mixed reality, and considers how – from the inception of video games through to the latest AR and VR applications – the history and culture of the Classical past has been twinned with the digital. The programme includes 24 presentations from academics and industry working at the intersection of Classics, Gaming, and Extended Reality, as well as numerous demos and play sessions. The conference will be held in the Humanities Research Space, and also on Zoom. For the full programme and to sign up, visit the TicketTailor page!
