About the Symposium

In a networked global culture, sophisticated multimedia is quickly becoming the worldwide currency. A longtime staple in the industries of advertising and entertainment, multimedia has now carved a new niche for itself: academia.

The Digital Studies Symposium is designed to introduce us to diverse scholarly media-based production. The speakers in this series are artists, programmers, scholars and designers, and their projects include cutting edge gestural interfaces, mobile media experiments, innovative websites and augmented reality pieces.

The presentations are moderated by Holly Willis, the IML's Director of Academic Programs.
