Join a panel discussion with Kaelin Jewell (Barnes Collection, Philadelphia) Anthony Masinton (Buildings Archaeologist Heritage Sites) David Neville (Grinnell College, Iowa). Presider: Jon Chun, digital humanities, Kenyon.
Virtual reality (VR) is often in the news today, but is it just a gimmick? Is it being used effectively in liberal arts colleges, in museums, and at heritage sites? The three panelists will discuss their experiences, challenges and hopes for VR within their fields. What kind of careers does VR offer in this area? They will then open the floor for questions from the audience.
Talk further to the panelists and explore the interior of the Chapter House at Westminster Abbey and other sites using the latest VR headset in the Visual Resources Center in the Gund Gallery — there will be an open house/reception from 12:10 - 1 p.m. following the panel discussion.
