2021 VIRGINIA HUMANITIES CONFERENCE PROGRAM
Category Archives: Uncategorized
In the interest of being a good public citizen, James Madison University will be cancelling or postponing all events hosted at JMU’s facilities between Monday, March 16 and at least Sunday, April 5. This includes events hosted by the university, and community and student organizations. As a result, this year’s Virginia Humanities Conference is cancelled.
For those of you who registered for the Virginia Humanities Conference, please know that we will begin refunding fees early next week. For most of you, this should be a fairly simple process of returning funds through PayPal or a credit card or returning/shredding a check. Please note that refunds will only be provided for individual registrants; institutional fees are annual and support the VHC in its year round activities. These will not be refunded.
Information about rescheduling the conference will be forthcoming as soon as possible.
If you have any questions regarding refunding fo fees, please contact VHC Treasurer Kirk Richardson at email@example.com.
Thank you for your interest in the Virginia Humanities Conference and stay healthy.
Saturday Workshop for Participants: “Enhancing Digital Humanities”
Saturday, March 28, Shayne Brandon will be leading a workshop for participants on “Enhancing Digital Humanities.” He will be sharing tools and techniques that facilitate story-telling and accessibility by doing more with 3D models, 360 degree photography, audio, and video by combining the different types of media to create art, talking models, and virtual tours.
Shayne Brandon is a Photogrammetry and 3D model visualization specialist at the University of Virginia. He uses aerial photography and photogrammetry to augment ground-based LIDAR scan data in order to form complete 3D models of historic sites. In addition to these tools, Shayne uses high-resolution 360 degree cameras to capture immersive photographs and video. He enjoys using new technology to capture moments in time and sharing the results with others.
