Themed Historical Walking Tours and Virtual Markers

highlighting lesser-known histories of Princeton using virtual reality web apps

 

The project will contribute to the initiatives of the Princeton History Working Group, an interdepartmental advisory group of the Princeton Iconography Committee, which aims to highlighting lesser-known histories of Princeton University. Based on interdepartmental collaboration, the project will shed light on aspects of Princeton’s past - such as African-American and women’s history - for both campus and local communities. The project will create themed historical walking tours using virtual reality web apps. A series of visual historical markers will encourage the public to reflect on specific events and people from throughout Princeton’s history.
