Proseminar in Media Arts and Sciences

Steven Benton, ML Staff


A seminar on Media Arts and Sciences, an emerging discipline. The seminar is conceived of as participation in the development of a new discipline as much as the study of it. Extensive reading list touches on antecedent disciplines (e.g., technologies of computational media, cognitive sciences, AI, theory of communication, design) and on the sociological, historical, and epistemological study of intellectual disciplines. Required of Ph.D. students in the Media Arts and Sciences Program. Restricted to doctoral candidates.
