The Rutgers Public Humanities App project proposes to redevelop the Rutgers 250 mobile application as a tool for history instruction and public history outreach. The goal is to use it to showcase a variety of different public humanities projects being conducted at Rutgers, beginning with the creation of a virtual walking tour highlighting the Scarlet & Black Project’s research into the history of slavery and dispossession in Rutgers history. The app will act as host for a virtual exhibit on this research, highlighting important primary sources, and as access point for visitors and other interested parties to learn more about this history. Dr. Kristin O’Brassill-Kulfan and Ph.D. candidate Dara Walker will discuss their work to date on this project, and they invite your feedback. Refreshments will be served.
