DMS 532 Grad Seminar II

Elder :: W 5-7:40pm :: CFA235

Graduate Seminar provides a creative setting for critique and discussion of your work. We will develop a roster of readings, viewings, and other material that can encourage an awareness of contemporary works and discourse in our various field areas. There may be short in-class production experiments, which may incorporate performance.

This course is an introduction to core aspects of the DMS grad program: organizing and writing your thesis abstract, sharing fundamental critical texts, making contact with the full range of Media Study disciplines, and developing a sense of the contemporary media arts field. It will introduce technological, conceptual, and theoretical issues in media practice, with an emphasis on individual development of a research-led methodology.

Note that regular attendance is mandatory. Lab fee is $125
