In Development at CNAM

 

Past/Present

We have received major grants from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the National Endowment for the Humanities to develop and market a full-featured computer game for teaching history and civics to American middle-schoolers.  Past/Present will be an online educational experience centering around a 3D virtual role-playing game that allows students to put themselves in the place of Americans from past eras.  Find out about our 1906-era prototype at our work-in-progress website.

 

Getting Back to Abnormal

Five years after the events surrounding Hurricane Katrina, how has New Orleans changed from the place it was before the storm? Set against the backdrop of the 2010 city elections, in which New Orleans chose the first white mayor in 32 years,Getting Back to Abnormal is an insider's look at one of America's most unusual cities as it grapples with recovery, racial divisions, and a winning football team. A return to CNAM's Louisiana roots, in collaboration with Paul Stekler.
