Lecture: 'Making Things Together - Expressive Culture as Research'
April 12, 2018
3:30 pm-5:30 pm
Integrative Learning Center
Room: Comm Hub, 3rd floor
UMass Amherst Campus
Presented by department of communication professor Lisa Henderson. Can we undertake communication and media scholarship in as broad a range of forms as the field studies? In films, on the internet, in photography, music, or computer games? This talk draws from in-depth interviews with distinguished practitioners of multi-modal research scholars, especially in studies of cultural production, who produce works other than articles and books. In the spirit of encouraging more multi-modal scholarship in our field, the talk will offer an illustrated inventory of current practices, along with a conversation about research and cultural value, expressive training and accountability to students, and the institutional investments that can support or hinder multi-modal work.
The Integrative Learning Center is located in the center of campus, between the campus pond and the Campus Center.
