Murder at Harvard Mobile

Development of a multi-media, historical, mobile walking tour of Boston.

The MURDER AT HARVARD MOBILE project (wt) will re-version a well-known N.E.H.-funded historical documentary about a notorious 1849 Boston murder into the basis of a 40-minute audio/video walking tour that will be accessed through a hand-held device similar to the iPhone. By using the compelling story of a famous crime as its narrative spine, this project will provide student groups and cultural tourists with a layered look at the social and cultural history of some of Boston's most significant downtown areas while it provides a road map for use of open source Mobile Narrative Software. The project will start in September, 2008 and end in February, 2009.
