The Cinema and Digital Media (CDM) program combines the study of
audio-visual and digital media, theories about such media, and
the relevant modes of artistic practice and production. CDM thus
integrates the analysis of audio-visual and digital texts with
their theoretical underpinnings and their methods of production.
The program also addresses the particular impact that technology
has on culture in its many forms and fields.
CDM faculty interweave teaching and research on these histories,
theories, and practices. Current fields for teaching and research
in CDM include the history and analysis of film and video, film
and video production, electronic music, digital content creation
and design, the digital arts, community media and activism,
animation, and photography—as well as the theories and politics
of these various areas.
The courses of study in Cinema and Digital Media remain the
majors and minors of Film Studies and Technocultural Studies. See
our Academics area
