"Making Things Together: Expressive Culture as Research Practice"

Presented by Lisa Henderson, Dean of the Faculty of Information & Media Studies. Part of the 2019/20 FIMS Seminar Series.

Abstract: Can we undertake communication scholarship in as broad a range of forms as the field studies?  In films, on the internet, in photography, music or computer games?  This presentation draws from interviews with distinguished practitioners of multi-modal research—scholars, especially in studies of cultural production, who produce works other than articles and books.  They include filmmakers, musicians, computational artists, game designers, community and policy activists, impresarios, novelists and pedagogues.  Most collaborate on and off campus, most hold PhDs and all are academically appointed.  In the spirit of encouraging more multi-modal scholarship in communication and related fields, the talk offers an illustrated inventory of current practices, along with a conversation about research and cultural value, expressive training, accountability to students, and the institutional investments that can support or hinder multi-modal work.
