CRC Brown Bag Series: Fall 2017

 

“3D Modeling for Digital Humanities using SketchUp,” Rebecca Corrie & Hamish Cameron.
Wednesday, October 25th: Noon – 1:00 (Roger Williams 105)

SketchUp Pro is a 3D modeling program that is both powerful and surprisingly easy to learn. While 3D modeling tools like SketchUp are often associated with fields like architecture and industrial design, this workshop will consider the appeal and usefulness of SketchUp in support of the digital humanities. Rebecca (Art and Visual Culture) and Hamish (Classical and Medieval Studies) will discuss their curricular use of SketchUp as a tool that allowed their students to create virtual reconstructions of structures of inquiry—from the Great Mosque at Damascus to ancient Roman theaters.

A light lunch will be provided. Please RSVP with this form if you plan to attend.
