      Professor Todd Presner (UCLA)
      Founder and Director of the HyperCities Project
      ( http://hypercities.com)

      Thursday, October 11, Noon
      Building 260, Room 252
      (Lunch will be provided)

      Built on the idea that every past is a place, HyperCities is a digital
      research and educational platform for
      exploring, learning about, and interacting with the layered histories of
      city and global spaces. Developed
      through collaboration between UCLA and USC, the fundamental idea behind
      HyperCities is that all stories
      take place somewhere and sometime; they become meaningful when they
      interact and intersect with other
      stories. HyperCities essentially allows users to go back in time to create
      and explore the historical layers
      of city spaces in an interactive, hypermedia environment.

      A HyperCity is a real city overlaid with a rich array of geo-temporal
      information, ranging from urban cartographies and media representations to
      family genealogies and the stories of the people and diverse communities
      who live and lived there. We are currently developing content for: Los
      Angeles, New York, Chicago, Rome, Lima, Ollantaytambo, Berlin, Tel Aviv,
      Tehran, Saigon, Toyko, Shanghai, Seoul, with many more (big and small) to
      come.
