Topic: VirtualSt. George's (Bermuda) Digital History project
Description: The project will build multi-layer 2D and selective 3D computer models of the oldest town in English America (founded 1612). Work might involve integrating different
types of historical data into Excel or ArcGIS databases, independent research on specific buildings and property owners using digital newspaper archives, "building" virtual 3D houses within the town using Sketch-Up or Maya, reconstructing and furnishing historic house interiors using interior design software, or (for computer programmers) developing mini-games or mobile devise apps to educate modern visitors to the town.
Successful applicants will register for HIS 395 Independent Research in
the spring and earn four Social Sciences credits toward a major, minor, or cluster. A "W" option can be negotiated. Students would be required to devote at least 10 hours per week to the project, working in campus labs or the new Digital History Lab in Rush Rhees 445.
