ARTHIST 305L: Virtual Museums: Theories and Methods of 21st-century Museums

Spring 2024

Instructor: Maurizio Forte

The future of museums will be one of immateriality and interaction. This course focuses on how the“Internet of Things,” augmented reality technologies and new data analyses of artifacts will transform the missions, roles and goals of museums and collections.

A core component of the course will be digital lab sessions focused on virtual reconstruction of lost heritage, including museums and sites destroyed and damaged by ISIS and other conflicts in Iraq and the Middle East (Hatra, Nineveh, Nimrud, Baghdad).
