Documenting Cappadocia


Documenting Cappadocia is an open access digital humanities resource on Byzantine art, architecture, and landscape features in the region of central Turkey. This bibliography, blog, gallery, and online community offers a starting point for academic research and background information for travelers. The project’s goal is to bridge the gap between commercial sources and published academic research by providing a scholarly introduction to the area.



I am the founder, director, and primary contributor. As of Spring 2016, the website will feature contributions from additional collaborators.


The website’s blog is a series of posts and tutorials about the process of documenting Byzantine monuments using digital humanities methods and tools.



Documenting Cappadocia has been supported by the New Media Lab since 2011. It was awarded the lab’s Dewey Digital Teaching Award, 2012.
