The present and future of virtual reality news and technology

7. The VR experience "1000 Cut Journey" is helping people experience racism. As part of the University of Michigan's Center for Academic Innovation’s Winter 2020 XR Speaker Series, alum Courtney Cogburn, who is now an associate professor at the Columbia School of Social Work, talked about her work in creating the piece, which was meant to foster awareness of the day-to-day racism faced by black Americans. In her talk entitled “XR: A Critical Analysis and Transdisciplinary Approach to Development and Application,” Cogburn explained that she first became interested in VR because of the medium's ability to enable perspective taking and reduce bias. “I was trying to imagine a way that I could complement my scientific, empirical work with something that was more visceral or emotional,” she explained, while also warning against the flipside of creating a type of  “trauma porn,” in which people feel good about feeling empathy. – THE MICHIGAN DAILY
