This NEH Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities Summer Institute, co-hosted by University of Massachusetts Amherst and UCLA and taking place over two consecutive summers, considers advanced problems and issues facing scholars working with 3D content with an emphasis on the end user experience. In 2015, participants gathered for a week at UMass Amherst to discuss key issues and challenges with institute faculty, and define research questions to be explored in the subsequent academic year. In 2016, participants will present their findings at a four-day symposium at UCLA.
Submissions were encouraged from:
Scholars with research or teaching projects that would benefit from advanced discussion of theoretical issues related to 3D content,
In-service educators interested in pedagogical applications for 3D content across humanities disciplines and grade levels,
Library, museum, and publishing professionals investigating or using 3D content in installations or born-digital publications, and
Technologists involved with interactive 3D computer graphics, educational games, or dissemination platforms.
