Auburn Avenue - Women in Civil Rights

Faculty: 
Dr. Jay Bolter

Many women played important roles in the Civil Rights Movement. Their efforts to lead the movement were often overshadowed by men, who still get more attention and credit for its successes in historical narratives. The motivation of the project is to design an engaging way that draws people's attention to women's achievements and helps people feel closer to the events and women that made history during the Civil Rights Movement.

Lab activities focus on understanding how to build interactive computing environments that directly augment a user's senses with computer-generated material. Researchers are interested in augmenting the user's perception, and place particular emphasis on the interaction between the users and their environment.
