Feedback form is now closed.
Digital and Virtual Heritage (DVH) is an emerging interdisciplinary field which employs traditional research methods, speculative experimentation, and digital tools to explore the wide-reaching features which make up the human experience. At UW-Green Bay, Heidi Sherman (Associate Professor and Chair of History) is leading a project to bring a replica of a Viking Grindbygning (a timber frame medieval Norwegian house) to their campus. Her colleague Luke Konkol, an instructional technologist with additional background in anthropology and 3D design, is working with a group of students using Blender (an open-source 3D design and animation software) and other tools to re-create an interactive 3D model of the structure along with evidence-based digital re-creations of artifacts. Presenters will outline DVH as a discipline, explore some of the techniques, benefits, and limitations of the field, demonstrate the tools (all free!) that UWGB is using to do this, and discuss the “Saga Project” in more detail. As this year’s theme is ‘The Year of Open,’ this hybrid presentation and round-table discussion will emphasize DVH’s motivation of increasing access to cultural materials as well as the open-resource nature of its research, creation, & curation.
