The Digital Oral Histories for Reconciliation (DOHR) project hit the news again in December, featured on CBC's The National. The project is directed by Renison's Dr. Kristina Llewellyn, and uses virtual reality (VR) to tell personal accounts of abuse at the ‘Nova Scotia Home for Colored Children.’ It is the first time in Canada that personal storytelling and immersive technology has been used in this way, allowing students to fully engage in the subject matter, and then participate in discussion. The goal of the project is to assess how VR can be used to educate young people, and build intergenerational and intercultural relationships.
