Harvey Flad, emeritus professor of geography, Meg Stewart, academic computing consultant, Leonard Nevarez, associate professor of sociology and director of Urban Studies, and Matthew Slaats, academic computing consultant for visual resources, will work in collaboration with The Children’s Media Project and other local groups and scholars, including Poughkeepsie youths, to develop a mobile game that examines the dynamic history of Poughkeepsie’s waterfront. Coinciding, in part, with October’s Quadricentennial Celebration, the Walking History project will use various technologies to explore historic events, oral histories, urban landscapes, environmental and ecological issues, culture, and social changes that have affected Poughkeepsie throughout its history.
