I am trying to get everything published as I tidy up my academic backlog.
I think I mentioned two journal articles were published last year
- Tost, L., & Champion, E. (2011). Evaluating Presence in Virtual Heritage Projects. International Journal of Heritage Studies (Taylor & Francis). DOI:10.1080/13527258.2011.577796 OR http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/13527258.2011.577796Champion, E., Bishop, I., & Dave, B. (2011). The Palenque project: evaluating interaction in an online virtual archaeology site. Virtual Reality, 1-19. DOI: 10.1007/s10055-011-0191-0
Two book chapters should also appear in 2012 or maybe even 2013:
- Travels in Intermedia[lity]: ReBlurring the Boundaries, Bernd Herzogenrath, ed. Interfaces: Studies in Visual Culture Series, Dartmouth College Press, 2012. NB Not in stock or not yet published, expected: June 2012. URL: http://www.upne.com/1611682595.html
- Champion, Erik. “History and Heritage in Virtual Worlds” in Grimshaw, M. (Ed.). (Pending). The Oxford Handbook of Virtuality. New York: Oxford University Press.
Current state of abstract: The potential of virtual reality technology applied to history and to cultural heritage appears to be rich and promising. Teaching history through digitally simulated ‘learning by doing’ is an incredibly understudied research area and is of vital importance to a richer understanding of culture and place. However many issues await to confront us: potential confusion between what is the past and what is history; the issue of realism when applied to the simulated portrayal of history and heritage; effective and meaningful interaction; the ownership of cultural knowledge before during and after it is digitally transmitted across the world; and how we can evaluate the successes and failures of this field.
And also an edited book project, on game mod design and theory, which I promise is still likely to be published this year.
Hope I have not forgotten anything!
EDIT: I did forget an article for the International Journal of Architectural Computing, with Andrew Dekker, on biofeedback, should be published (when it arrives) here: http://multi-science.metapress.com/content/121497/
