Virtual Museums: Theories and Methods of Twenty-First-Century Museums


The future of museums will be one of immateriality and interaction. Course focuses on how the "Internet of Things," augmented reality technologies, new data analyses of artifacts will transform missions, roles, and goals of museums and collections. Core of course will be digital lab sessions focused on virtual reconstruction of lost heritage—e.g., museums and sites destroyed and damaged by ISIS and other conflicts in Iraq and the Middle East (Hatra, Nineveh, Nimrud, Baghdad).
