Emerging Visions: Digital Media and Culture is a research series jointly sponsored by UBC Vancouver’s Green College and FCCS. This series presents innovative artists and scholars who are pushing the boundaries of contemporary creative and critical practice.
This fall we had three excellent presentations from artist-researchers and scholars from all over North America. Their talks have been inspiring and relevant to a number of faculty member’s work in FCCS, and has been a great opportunity to be introduced to faculty members’ research in FCCS as well. The topics included the use of new technology in performance, interactive art, art history, narrative, and interdisciplinary practice and study, and curriculum development.
The series will continue into 2014:
Wednesday, January 15, 2014 | Future Delta- Gaming Technology and Climate Change
Dr. Stephen Sheppard, UBC Vancouver and Dr. Aleksandra Dulic, UBC Okanagan
Wednesday, March 19, 2014 | Indigenous Digital Media and the Post-Colonial Imagination

Wednesday, April 16, 2014 | Archive, Edition, or Research Environment? The Perils and Pleasures of Digital Scholarship

Each session is held on campus at 2:00pm in the Creative and Critical Studies building, room CCS 142.
