ChitChat: Crime, History and Institutions: Transdisciplinary Conversations in Heritage, Art and Transmedia

#CHITCHAT? is a sandpit for research collaboration and forum for the development of tools that encourage public engagement with our research findings and other heritage materials.

At its core, this initiative will engage academic researchers, industry professionals, heritage stakeholders, and the general public in transdisciplinary conversations around Crime, History and Public Institutions through transmedia methods, sources, and platforms. 

This initiative will include an initial seminar to bring together various academics, heritage providers, industry professionals, and technical specialists, to discuss possibilities for projects and strategise around methods and platforms for dissemination. This may include a transmedia resource for exploring crime and punishment in Historical Plymouth, by drawing upon the Devon and Cornwall Police Heritage Archive and Dartmoor Prison Museum collections. 

The aim is to develop and incorporate Augmented Reality (AR) or Virtual Reality (VR) technology to immerse the public in the history of their community.
