PhD Awarded


Paul Cripps has been awarded a PhD for his research in geosemantics.

His examiners were Dr. Stuart Jeffrey of the Glasgow School of Art and Professor Gary Higgs. 

The supervision team was  Douglas Tudhope (DoS), Alex Lohfink, Mark Ware. 

Paul's thesis was on "Geosemantic technologies for archaeological research”.

The fusion of geospatial and semantic technologies has led to the emergence of a field of research focussing on geosemantics, i.e. the semantics of space and place. This topic has not been thoroughly explored within the digital humanities domain, yet is undoubtedly key to research regarding the understanding of human societies through time. The specific focus of this research is geosemantic technologies in the context of archaeological research processes.
