Celebrate the start of the semester with the Berkeley Center for New Media’s annual Open House! We’ll be serving refreshments and great new media conversation, featuring announcements on our public programming, latest course offerings, and the fellowship opportunities available to students this academic year. You’ll also have the chance to demo some of the exciting new media tools and programs our faculty and graduates have developed. Experience first-hand the cutting edge scholarship we’re thrilled to support!
Join us to reconnect — or forge new connections — and find out more about how you can be involved in new media at Berkeley!
The BCNM Open House is open to all UCB faculty, staff, and graduate students.
The Berkeley Center for New Media aims to analyze and shape developments in new media through critical theory, critical practice, and innovation. We study how we use emerging technologies to forge innovative means of expression from multidisciplinary and global perspectives, and examine the risks of, and opportunities for new media to influence human interactions in the contexts of science, law, democracy, education, and art. BCNM is a magnet for rigorous scholars at UC Berkeley who challenge conventional thinking through collaboration. Our researchers make, break, and recreate media objects, processes, and ideas to grapple with the question of what makes us real.
