What happens when two members of the Carleton history department reconstruct Revolutionary Boston as a computer game? Professors Serena Zabin and Austin Mason have been working with Carleton undergraduates and the Old State House Museum in Boston on an immersive, interactive 3d experience of the 1770 Boston Massacre, entitled “Witness to the Revolution.” Come listen to Professors Zabin and Mason discuss the research and process of creating the game. You will get a chance to experience the eighteenth-century city while exploring the hard problems of settling on a singular truth about the past.

Cost: $10 per person (includes lunch)

RSVP REQUIRED here by Friday, December 7. It will not be possible to accommodate walk-ins.
