Transatlantic Digital Victorians: Huron and Huddersfield

Students of Dr. Amy Bell (Huron) and Dr. Paul Ward (Huddersfield) have completed their 2016 “Transatlantic Digital Victorians” research project. Working with local community heritage partners at Eldon House, London, and the Skelmanthorpe¬†Textile Heritage Centre, students photographed and researched historical objects, and created collaborative virtual exhibits.¬† Reflecting on the ways in which the project provides new ways to read and to challenge histories of home and empire, students also explored challenges of technology used to create digital objects, such as the 3-D scanner that captured the image of a Victorian trinket dish, featured above.
