Augmenting the University
The 2017-2018 Praxis cohort is moving the material history of UVA out of Special Collections and onto Grounds. Using mobile Artifical Reality applications, Augmenting the University explores otherwise hidden stories, histories, and questions surrounding objects and spaces at UVA. In doing so, we hope to prompt users to re-examine everyday environs and critically reflect on the structure, culture, mission, and history of the university.
The Praxis Program reimagines graduate methodological training for the demands of the humanities in the digital age.
Our goal is to equip knowledge workers for positions within and beyond the academy at a moment in which new questions can be asked and new systems built. The Praxis Program produces humanities scholars who can reach new audiences and are as comfortable writing code as they are managing teams and budgets.
