I am part of a group of CUNY faculty members, researchers and doctoral students affiliated with the CUNY Graduate Center’s Digital Media Studies Group, that has organized The Digital University, an all-day conference on Wednesday, April 21, 2010, at the CUNY Graduate Center in midtown Manhattan.

Bringing together an invited group of media practitioners, academic publishers, digital content developers and academics, the conference is designed to assess the impact of digital media on academic work and academic policy and authority.

The schedule is here

Participants include:


The Artist-Citizen, Advocating Change
Tuesday, March 23, 6:30 pm

The role of artists needs to be repositioned as essential to our culture and society. How can artists determine how to maneuver within the existing societal structure to achieve reliable, long lasting support both politically and socially. How can artists realize that individuals can hone power to implement change? What are the resources that artists may utilize to understand the rights and opportunities that already exist? What are some examples of artists who have advocated for more support and have succeeded? What are steps artists can take to achieve greater agency for themselves?

Moderated by Zeferey Throwell.

Ok first, the audience was actually responding and laughing, but it sounds strange because the only mic is on the stage so it’s difficult to hear. But they were there…. Also, this is taken from a stream, so the quality is as good as it’s going to get – sorry about that.

This is a video from my presentation for Prix Ars on the New York Times Special Edition. I talk about how the idea was generated, developed, and a bit about the purpose of the project as well as some of the ramifications. It’s about 30 minutes total and you can download it below.
