James Coltrain
Ph.D. candidate
History
Northwestern University

Fields of Interest: Imaging/Visualization, Libraries/Digital Archives, Modelling/Simulations

James Coltrain is a doctoral candidate in Early American History at Northwestern University. His academic interests include using studies of material and visual culture to address questions of social and cultural history. He is currently writing a dissertation on the architecture and society of the fortified imperial communities of 18th-century North America. He is also very interested in the use of new media, both to present scholarly findings and for public outreach. James has completed virtual 3D reconstructions of the original Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem, the medieval city of Metz, and a number of colonial forts as part of his work on historical visualization.

Theaster Gates
Artist

My art practice is comprised of 3 parts, installation, performance and hospitality. In each of those areas, I use a combination of very low technology outputs combined with live performance. I hope to use sound and video much more extensively and very open to collaborations with technicians interested in outputs for their scientific or technological research. Sound and video manipulation and installation, interactivity and GIS all play substantial roles in my creative processes.
