Reconstruction 360 Production Grant

Production of an immersive website and mobile application exploring the impact and legacy of Reconstruction.

Reconstruction 360 is a web and mobile application that, for the first time, brings Reconstruction history to a 360° video platform. Created for the general public, students and educators, Reconstruction 360 is designed to increase understanding of the Reconstruction era for users of digital devices including computers, tablets and phones. It will contain six modules, each interpreting a different theme of Reconstruction history. To date, the first module, Land and Labor: Forty Acres and a Mule, has been completed and can be accessed at www.reconstruction360.org. For each module, the 360° video platform consists of a reenactment of a different aspect of Reconstruction history. The purpose of the immersive reenactment is to place the user inside the scene, creating a first-person experience. This emerging form of storytelling provides a sense of presence and place, inducing feelings of empathy, fear, conflict, and other responses that help people internalize difficult content.

Reconstruction 360

Prototyping of an interactive mobile app and website using 360-degree video to examine multiple perspectives on the impact and legacy of Reconstruction.

Reconstruction 360 will apply the elements of documentary film—interviews with historians and descendants, carefully crafted video reenactments, archival footage and music, photographs, drawings, maps, and text—to stories that represent significant Reconstruction themes. The final products will be an immersive, mobile application and a companion website that are widely available to a global audience on tablets and smartphones, bringing the Reconstruction era to life for users of mobile and online platforms at all levels of expertise. We will also develop resources for teachers and students in grades 8–12, as well as fundraising, marketing and promotion plans for implementation of the site, and outreach programming for general audiences statewide and for dissemination nationally.

Between the Waters: Hobcaw Barony Website Project

Implementation of a website, an interactive virtual tour, and supporting programs interpreting the natural and social history of Hobcaw Barony, the South Carolina estate of Bernard Baruch.

"Between the Waters" is a website and interactive virtual tour that will showcase the culture and history of Hobcaw Barony, a 17,500 acre historic site in Georgetown, South Carolina, which is arguably the setting for a greater confluence of humanities themes than any other in the state. Using the website's artifacts, structures and landmarks as storytelling cues, "Between the Waters" will connect material culture to the lives of those who inhabited Hobcaw and interpret their history for the general public. The non-linear navigation of "Between the Waters" will encourage inquiry, analysis and deductive reasoning, giving visitors the skills and incentive to explore and reflect upon the multifaceted story of Hobcaw Barony, how it has helped to shape the American present and its implications for the future of South Carolina and the country.

Between the Waters: Hobcaw Barony Website Planning Project

Planning for a website, a virtual tour, and educational materials about the history of Bernard Baruch's rural estate in coastal South Carolina, its African American residents, and its legacy for regional land conservation.

"Between the Waters" is a proposed website that will interpret the culture and history of Hobcaw Barony, the former South Carolina winter retreat of financier Bernard Baruch. Baruch purchased the property in 1905 when it was home to more than 100 descendants of slaves living in conditions little changed since Emancipation, and it became a haven for world leaders, writers, businessmen, journalists, artists and movie stars. Belle Baruch, Bernard's daughter, preserved the property and founded the Belle W. Baruch Foundation, securing Hobcaw for education and research. "Between the Waters" will connect material culture to the lives of Hobcaw's residents and visitors through a rich multi-media experience combining video, audio, text and interactives; the website will encourage inquiry and deductive reasoning, allowing users to explore and reflect upon the story of Hobcaw Barony, how it has helped to shape the American present and its implications for the future of South Carolina and the country.
