Makemson Presents at Digital Humanities Conference

Justin MakemsonBelmont’s Art Education Program Coordinator Justin Makemson recently presented at the Digitorium Digital Humanities Conference at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. Makemson’s presentation, “Tagging, Caching, and Augmented Realities on a 19th Century Campus,” recounted the development of a student-designed, student-implemented geographic information systems and augmented reality technologies tour of Belmont’s campus.

For the development of the self-guided art and architecture tour, students “tagged” multiple campus landmarks, linking the contemporary site to a video-based discussion of historical photography taken on location. Makemson has presented at a number of national and state art education conferences including a presentation on his research on artistic self-definitions and the “artistic other” at the iJADE/NSEAD Conference in Liverpool, UK earlier this year.
