Inaugural Reception for the School of Film and Media Studies
Michelle Stewart’s (Chair) Remarks
Thank you all for coming today.
I’d like to thank Martha, Lorraine, and Peter, as well as the student volunteers, Erik, Sam, Grace, Kathryn, Dan for all their sweat, muscle, and creativity in helping to prepare the reception.
and following the presentation, there will be two programs of Film and Media students work displayed on these two screens. At that point, I’ll ask you to feast on cookies and images __and to schmooze with one another__ which is really why we’re here today.
—what is it that we each do particularly well and that we can accomplish even more intensely by collaborating with one another?
From analogue to digital production and from humanistic to social scientific analysis, we encourage one another to construct and deconstruct at the same time.
We train our students (that’s you) to be acutely perceptive, hyper-literate media artists,
as well as creative media critics and anthropologists, who build, study, contest, and re-envision the mediated social worlds in which we now maneuver.
