The Forum explores three interactive documentary projects for the: Between the Waters, South Carolina ETV’s immersive transmedia website showcasing lowcountry culture and history, Walden, a game, a first person simulation of the life of American philosopher Henry David Thoreau during his experiment in self-reliant living, produced by USC Game Innovation Lab, and Immigrant Stories, produced by University of Minnesota’s Immigration History Research Center, which helps recent immigrants and refugees create digital stories. These digital portals offer opportunities to share, explore, and discover, empowering the audiences and creating communities.  All three projects were supported by grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
