Maureen McGuire, a Ph.D. candidate in Visual Studies at UCSC, is learning how to use digital tools to advance understanding of the art and architecture of Late Antiquity and the Global Middles Ages more broadly. Through workshops organized by Lynn Ramey of Vanderbilt University and Roger Martinez of the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, Maureen and other participants in the Immersive Global Middle Ages program funded by the Institute for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities, a part of the National Endowment for the Humanities, got hands on experience using virtual reality, augmented reality, and other digital tools for use in the classroom. These tools will certainly facilitate a better understanding of the Late Antique world, especially in Constantinople, and open up new avenues for research and critical engagement.
