Advanced Challenges in Theory and Practice in 3D Modeling of Cultural Heritage Sites

This NEH Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities Summer Institute, co-hosted by Arkansas State University and UCLA, will consider advanced problems and issues facing scholars working with 3D content with an emphasis on the end user experience. This institute will take place over two consecutive summers. In 2015, participants will gather for a week at ASU to discuss key issues and challenges with institute faculty, and define research questions that they will explore in the subsequent academic year. In 2016, participants will present their findings at a three-day symposium to be held at UCLA.

Applications are due March 16, 2015.

The application process will be posted by November 1, 2014.

Submissions are 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.
