Colonial Williamsburg Foundation (Williamsburg, VA 23185-4138)
Lisa Ellen Fischer (Project Director: November 2007 to November 2012)
Establishment of a 3D Visualization Lab at the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation

Acquisition of software and equipment, and an endowment for staff positions, training, software acquisition and maintenance, a research fellowship, speaker programs, and staff travel in a digital history center.

The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation seeks an $813,750 Challenge Grant under the Digital Humanities Initiative from the National Endowment for the Humanities to promote the development of digital technologies for humanities education by establishing a $3.255 million endowment to support the Foundation's Digital History Center (DHC). The endowment will enable the Foundation to expand the work of the DHC in creating digital resources designed to encourage research and public awareness of the American Revolution and founding principles at the heart of the American democratic experience. Specifically, an NEH Challenge Grant will be used to establish a 3D Visualization Lab that will advance the development of interactive, 3D computer graphics (3D CG) to model Williamsburg at the time of the Revolution and to create other virtual environments relevant to the Foundation's educational programming.
