Retreat focuses on opportunities for Carson School

moviesEnvisioning a highly multidisciplinary future for the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film is the goal of a UNL faculty retreat Nov. 16-17.

New technologies, especially new media and digital art forms, are expanding the potential reach of film and emerging media. UNL has an opportunity to envision a future for the Carson School that incorporates the talents of faculty and students from many disciplines. “Movies & Beyond: Connecting Digital Creativity Across Disciplines” will bring together faculty to explore the creative intersections of film and emerging media with design, journalism, computational thinking, technology, science and other disciplines.

The retreat begins Nov. 16 with a reception and dinner at the Lied Commons. On Nov. 17, day-long retreat activities will be at the Nebraska Innovation Campus conference center.

The agenda features nationally recognized speakers Elizabeth Daley, dean of the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts, and Ira Greenberg, Professor of Computer Science and Engineering and Director of the Center of Creative Computation at Southern Methodist University. Interactive discussion groups will define how creating connections across disciplines can develop students who will innovate in many professional fields using film and emerging media.

More information is available on the retreat website.

The retreat kicks off UNL’s fall Research Fair activities. The Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film is hosting the retreat. Sponsors are the Office of the Chancellor, Office of Research and Economic Development and the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts.
