Spread the Word! Duke University recently approved the creation of a Computational Media track in our MA from the Department of Art, Art History & Visual Studies. Our MA now has two pathways - one is in Digital Art History, which is associated with the Wired Lab for Digital Art History and Visual Culture. Our new track is in Computational Media, which focuses on computational media forms and their potential for cultural research, digital heritage, and creative expression. Students in the program might work with:
- The Emergence Lab exploring new forms of data-driven media interface design
- Duke Art Law and Markets to consider how statistical analysis enables us to understand the past and present in new ways
- The DiG Digital Archeology Lab, where researchers are using drones, sensors, VR and AR to reconstruct cultural heritage sites
- The Information Science + Studies Lab, where we consider how new forms of digital media authorship, information analysis, archiving, mapping, and annotation are changing the ways we think and communicate
- The Speculative Sensation Lab, which uses biometric and environmental sensing technologies to expand our access to sensory experience beyond the five senses
Both MA tracks participate in Duke's distinctive interdisciplinary lab model of teaching and research, and combine theory and practice on the way to a degree that prepares students for further work in academic, cultural institutions, non-profits, and industry.
