Interactive Digital Studies: A Decade of Digital Innovation at UNI

Wednesday, December 8, 2021 - 4:00 pm

Interactive Digital Studies (IDS) at UNI is one of the most unique interdisciplinary programs in the country, and celebrates its 10th anniversary this academic year.  Over the past decade, IDS has prepared students for a wide range of emerging digital careers students have never known about. To commemorate a decade of accomplishments, IDS students, faculty, and alumni will showcase the program on Dec. 8 in Rod Library from 4 to 8 p.m. Visitors can learn about the 10 different IDS “bundle” emphases (advertising, visualization, imaging, history, writing, computation, web development, music, video, and a proposed bundle in digital mapping). Exhibits will feature an Oculus Rift virtual reality demonstration, examples of “deep fake” video, creative photomontage, geolocation projects, digital archive projects, visual history timelines, and graphic technology products. Free stickers and other giveaways will be available. CHAS Dean John Fritch, who helped launch the program, will be one of the speakers during a short presentation between 4:30 and 5 p.m.
