History Lab: Exhibition of Class Projects
History Lab is a new team-taught transdisciplinary course using creative technologies to explore hidden histories. Join us in the Newman Library Multipurpose Room (1st floor, behind the coffee shop) on Tues May 3, 2:00-3:15, to view our student projects.
As VT commemorates its 150th, our student teams have combined their disciplinary backgrounds in history, visual arts, and other subjects to produce innovative exhibits: a projection mapping display on a 3D-printed model of Burruss Hall; a multisensory exploration of the ongoing Monacan presence in the New River Valley; a 3D virtual exhibit about the original Preston & Olin Institute Building; and more.
Everyone is welcome to stop by, check out the displays, and chat with students about the transdisciplinary teamwork and creative processes behind their projects.
The History Lab course is taught by David Hicks (Education), Todd Ogle (Libraries), Paul Quigley (History), and Thomas Tucker (Visual Arts). Learn more about our teaching and research projects at historylab.vt.edu
