For those of you who know of students looking for graduate programs,
there is a new MA program in New Media Art History launching next year
at OCAD University in Toronto that might be of interest. It
complements OCAD's already intense focus on practice- and research-
based activity in media and digital studies, such as its Digital
Futures Initiative, which some of you may know.
Feel free to distribute.
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS:
MASTER OF ARTS IN CONTEMPORARY ART,
DESIGN AND NEW MEDIA ART HISTORIES
OCAD University is pleased to announce the expansion of its Master's
program in Contemporary Art History to now include New Media Art
History and Design History. Housed in one innovative program -- the MA
in Contemporary Art, Design and New Media Art Histories -- these three
fields prepare students to investigate the full breadth and complexity
of today's creative cultural activity.
Artists and designers in the 21st century often employ unconventional
and hybrid strategies that can challenge traditional forms of
analysis. Examinations of contemporary art, new media and design
therefore require flexible and creative conceptual approaches. Through
historical contextualization, scholarly rigour, and cross-disciplinary
methods, this program supports the production of pioneering research
into newly emerging art, design and new media practices.
This MA program offers three fields of specialization:
-- Contemporary Art History
-- Design History
-- New Media Art History
With an extensive core faculty, the program offers students an
impressive array of perspectives with which to explore the ever-
shifting worlds of contemporary art, design and new media art. The
moderate size of the program (16-20 students per year) ensures that
each student receives personalized attention.
