Digital Delta Project
Little Manila Recreated

A team of Pacific students, faculty and staff from the history department, computer science department and the library created a virtual reality museum exhibit that digitally reconstructed the now-demolished Little Manila neighborhood in Stockton. The project used historical research and interviews and forged ties between past and present immigrants while historicizing the effects of immigration policies and city planning decisions on community cohesion.
