CHAT Festival, NC State University

Friday, February 28, 2014 - 12:00am

Please save the date for the 2014 CHAT Festival on Friday, February 28 in the Hunt Library at NC State University!

CHAT (Collaborations in Humanities, Arts, & Technology) represents a collaboration among academic and education partners in the Research Triangle. Its biannual festivals bring together researchers, educators, students, artists, and professionals to discuss, demonstrate, and celebrate new media in the arts and humanities. The CHAT Festival was first hosted in 2010 at the University of North Carolina--Chapel Hill, reprised in 2012 at Duke University, and in 2014 comes to NC State.

Held in the world-class James B. Hunt Library on NC State’s Centennial Campus, the 2014 CHAT Festival will feature demonstrations by new media scholars and artists, workshops on how to facilitate innovative collaborations in academic research and training (featuring participants from NCSU's Circuit Studio, Duke's PhD Lab, and UNC-CH's Digital Innovation Lab), and discussions about user interface design in collaboration with NexUX: a conference on user experience concurrently hosted by the NC State Department of Computer Science.

Faculty and grad students interested in new media, digital humanities, and interdisciplinary collaboration are especially encouraged to attend. The CHAT Festival is free and open to the public with complimentary lunch and a late-afternoon reception. Registration is requested. Full program details, logistics, and registration can be found online at:

Patrick Fitzgerald, Associate Professor of Art + Design, NCSU, 2014 CHAT Festival Director
