We’ve received a $180,000 AHRC Follow-on Funding for Impact and Engagement Scheme Grant with our colleagues at Queen’s University of Belfast, Dr. Andrew Pepper and Dr. Dominique Jeannerod, for “Scene of the Crime: New Digital Storytelling and Mapping Technologies for Crime.” Our goal is to create a mobile AR adaptation of a detective novel set in Edinburgh by the internationally best-selling author Ian Rankin, in partnership with Orion Publishing Group. This test case (pun intended) will allow us to explore new research questions surrounding AR storytelling, such as how to tell a linear story through a nonlinear medium, and how transportation to a fictional world is affected by transportation within the real world.
