The Immersive Technologies and Cultural Heritage (ITCH) Symposium is co-hosted by the USC Mellon Humanities in a Digital World Program.
The symposium will bring together humanities researchers working with immersive technologies to showcase innovative projects, engage in feedback, and build community. The sessions will elucidate benefits of working at the intersection of digital technologies and the liberal arts.
During the symposium, each participant will lead a hands-on demonstration of their project; give a 10-15-minute presentation summarizing the project’s context, goals, and implications for humanities scholarship; and offer a prepared comment regarding a project shared by a fellow participant. The symposium will conclude with a roundtable discussion considering the promise and perils of immersive technologies for humanities research, teaching, and learning.
