The present and future of virtual reality news and technology

3. Spotlight: Women in VR - Courtney Cogburn 

By Alice Bonasio

Courtney Cogburn is a writer, director, and associate professor of social work at Columbia University whose work focuses on how emerging technologies affect vulnerable populations. Her work also investigates how advancements in VR and immersive media can be leveraged to address issues such as systemic racism. 

Her highly acclaimed project, 1000 Cut Journey, puts you in the shoes of Michael Sterling, a character experiencing racism in his daily life, enabling a firsthand experience of the impact this can have. Cogburn is currently working on updating 1000 Cut Journey in collaboration with Stanford and the studio iNK Stories, and continues to consider questions around how different skill sets and experiences can create new avenues for storytelling in VR. "I like transdisciplinary approaches," she says. "It's not my idea, it's the idea that we bring together as a team," she said in a recent interview with HP Garage.

Every Tuesday, we'll shine a spotlight on the female trailblazers making their mark in immersive tech and their work. If you have a story you think we should feature, just hit reply to this email or tweet me @alicebonasio.
