In this ongoing interdisciplinary research project, we are designing an Augmented Reality application to enhance visitors’ understanding of Civil War era history at the Pamplin Historical Park in Petersburg, Virginia.

The application will provide technologically innovative and engaging ways for park visitors of all ages to better understand humanities scholarship on several topics that are not always prominent in public history presentations of Civil War era history: environmental and oglemilitary history; the war’s impact on households and civilians, including enslaved African Americans; and the nature of historical sources and the construction and reconstruction of historical narratives over time.

We received an initial Discovery Grant to facilitate collaborative planning. We are currently applying for the next stage of the grant: Prototyping.
