BETHA? I Hardly Even KNOW Her!

Posted: August 20th, 2004 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | Comments Off

Last week I pengarticipated in the BETHA Institute for New Media & Writing Studies at The Ohio State University, where scholars from Michigan Tech, MIT, Michigan State, UC Santa Barbara, Kent State, OSU, and a few other places met to discuss the direction of “new media studies” in the humanities (but mainly composition studies, as that was the overrepresented group of the lot).

Also, our afternoon sessions were allotted for studio time in the Digital Union, where participants worked on various projects themselves: short films, Flash animations, web design, curriculum development, and so on. Fun? Of course. Productive? To a point, but many of these projects are works in progress, so they’re still in the hopper. Definitive? Can anyone really agree on a definition for “new media,” let alone what the teaching/study of it should look like? Suffice it to say that big plans are in the works to extend this conversation into the academy at large.

Here’s the Bethablog.
