Participatory Heritage in an Age of 3D Virtualization

Friday, March 24 at 1 p.m. in IT 252


Within weeks of a plan to close the doors on the Indianapolis Bethel AME (African Methodist Episcopal) Church, faculty and an alumnus from the Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI worked to save the historic church’s troves of archival documents and objects.

Out of this significant contribution to the city’s storied past comes something for the future—a virtual 3-D walk-through of the church that will be open for public use—recreated by faculty and students from the School of Informatics and Computing.


This panel brings together researchers, technologists, and community members to talk about their experiences, future opportunities, and advancements in research and technology. Panelists include Andrea Copeland (LIS), Ayoung Yoon (LIS), Zeb Wood, (MAS), Albert William (MAS), and others from within and outside SoIC.
