3D Printing for Submerged Heritage: A Comparative Study in Structured Light and Photogrammetry (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Anne E. Wright.

This paper seeks to compare the 3D modeling techniques of photogrammetry and structured light to create 3D models of propellers found on a variety of shipwrecks. Additionally, this project seeks to determine best practices for 3D printing in situ heritage on submerged archaeological sites, focusing particularly on structural elements.

Bodies Lying in State: Nationalism, the Past, and Identity  (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Margaret A Comer.

In the twenty-first century, nationalism continues to be a powerful motivating ideology in global, national, and local politics.  In the hope of overtly and covertly strengthening cohesive nationalist sentiment and identity, individual states often use the very bodies of past peoples as symbols and ideological tools.

Curating Rhode Island’s History: Lessons in Accountability and the Rehabilitation of State-owned Collections (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Danielle R Cathcart. Heather Olson.

As we celebrate the anniversary of the NHPA, many states are now coming to terms with the immensity of the archaeological collections gathered on their behalf over the past fifty years. While academics and professionals have become experts at minimizing the effects of development on buried and extant cultural resources through archaeological excavation, these endeavors have amassed a staggering amount of objects and information that too often languishes in deteriorating bags and boxes—poorly...
