11th ANNUAL CRITICAL THEMES IN MEDIA STUDIES CONFERENCE AT THE NEW SCHOOL, NYC, USA


My name is Oz Skinner, I am a graduate student at the New School for
Media Studies. I am writing because we partnered with your University
last year to promote our graduate studies conference: Critical Themes In
Media Studies, and we were hoping to partner again this year. I have
attached a copy of the press release in the hopes that you will
advertise our event to your students. We anticipate that members of your
student body will be interested in our academic conference. If you have
any questions about the conference or any of the information presented
in the press release please contact me at Ozskinner@gmail.com or by
phone at 530-828-0631.

*11th ANNUAL CRITICAL THEMES IN MEDIA STUDIES CONFERENCE AT THE NEW SCHOOL
*/Innovative Scholarly Research at the Intersection of Media and Society
/Hosted by The New School Department of Media Studies and Film
and the Art, Media & Technology Department at Parsons the New School for
Design


*April 15 & 16, 2011, New York NY. The 11th Annual Critical Themes
Conference at the New School will bring together students from across
the globe to present interdisciplinary, theoretical, and critical
approaches to a broad range of media studies. This year’s theme,
*/Multimodal Scholarship/*, explores how we in Media Studies might
transform the media technologies that have traditionally been our
research subjects, into research tools, and thereby “open up fresh
avenues” of creative scholarship.

The two-day conference will kick off with a panel discussion entitled
“The Multimodal Dissertation” in which PhD students Jennifer Heuson,
Veronica Paredes, and Carlin Wing will present their experiences with
multimodal research work. Following this will be an opening keynote
address from Professor Clay Shirky of the Interactive Telecommunications
Program at New York University. Saturday will continue with a full day
of student presentations, and will conclude with a closing keynote
address by Wendy Hui Kyong Chun, Professor of Modern Culture and Media
at Brown University. Since the initial conference in 2000, Critical
Themes has grown into a leading forum for showcasing research papers
from graduate students pushing the boundaries of academic research. This
year the conference continues this trend as it welcomes student scholars
from eighteen universities spanning six countries.
