Virtual and Augmented Reality in the Humanities Symposium

Friday, February 21, 2020 - 12:30pm to 3:00pm

Smith Warehouse, Ahmadieh Family Lecture Hall, Bay 4, C105

In 2018 the NEH sponsored an Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities Summer Institute focused on Virtual and Augmented Reality at Duke. This symposium will bring back several of our Institute participants to talk about their experiences working with VR and AR in diverse arts and humanities fields, and to consider together how such work can be supported and evaluated in academic contexts. Lunch will be served, followed by lightning talks and a panel discussion. The discussion will be moderated by the VARDHI grant and PhD lab co-directors, Phil Stern, Dept of History and Victoria Szabo, Dept of Art, Art History & Visual Studies.
