Augmenting the University: Using Augmented Reality to Excavate University Spaces

Published in Digital Humanities 2018, Puentes-Bridges: Book of Abstracts, 2018

Recommended citation: Christian Howard, Monica Blair, Spyros Simotas, Ankita Chakrabarti, Torie Clark, and Tanner Greene (2016). "Augmenting the University: Using Augmented Reality to Excavate University Spaces." Digital Humanities 2018, Puentes-Bridges: Book of Abstracts.

Using augmented reality (AR) applications, the 2017-2018 UVA Praxis Team created the project titled UVA Reveal: Augmenting the University to augment spaces and locations on the University of Virginia (UVA) campus. UVA is a southern historic campus with an enrollment of 22,000 students; given its history and recent spotlight in the news, UVA’s campus is ripe for the historical inquiry and narrative intervention that our project proposes. In augmenting UVA’s campus, we hope to expose the historical, cultural, (inter)national, (trans)sexual, and (dis)ability-related “archeology” of objects, places, and events. (Peer Reviewed)

Recreating Faulkner’s Fictional World: The Publication of the Chronology and Genealogy in Absalom, Absalom!

Published in The Faulkner Journal, 2016

Recommended citation: Howard, Christian. (2016). "Recreating Faulkner’s Fictional World: The Publication of the Chronology and Genealogy in Absalom, Absalom!." The Faulkner Journal. 30(2): 83-99.

William Faulkner included an appendix to Absalom, Absalom! consisting of a chronology, genealogy, and map; this was the only one of his novels originally published with such an appendix. Most scholars have regarded these end materials as supplementary materials, yet such views derive largely from editorial decisions, which have relegated the end materials to “mer[e] aids to the reader” rather than “modern adjuncts to the novel,” as Noel Polk puts it. Nonetheless, upon examining Faulkner’s correspondence with his editors housed in the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library at the University of Virginia, I reassess the hitherto supplementary status of these end materials. Rather than assessing them in terms of accuracy or inaccuracy, I argue that we should consider their content and form, free of the assumption that they are merely readerly “aids.” To this end, I offer a parallel between these end materials and Biblical chronologies and genealogies, which offer a viable means of understanding the operation of the chronology and genealogy within Faulkner’s storyworld.
