We welcome Rosana Chang as our new Director of AV Services!
Most recently the Assistant Director of AV at Columbia GSAPP, Rosana has extensive experience in A/V, including at the Whitney Museum, installing exhibits like "Dreamlands" (2016) and the Whitney Biennial (2017). She was also the lead projectionist for the Tribeca Film Festival 2016-2019, and has been a projectionist at Lincoln Center. Welcome, Rosana!
This May we welcomed 10 participants from across the College to the Thinking Digitally Summer Institute (TDSI).
Over the course of three days, participants designed and scaffolded assignments to grow students’ capacities to think digitally and ethically.
The TDSI is a collaborative effort with organizers from the CEP, DHC, and IMATS and instructors from BLAIS and the academic centers—thanks to everyone who helped make this year a success!

Vani’s chapter is entitled “Counterstoried Spaces and Unknowns: A Queer South Asian Librarian Dreaming."
Guy de Lancey from the Movement Lab has been included in an illustrious international teaching ensemble at The New School of the Anthropocene, described as both an "experiment" and "an act of repair, one that seeks to reinstate the intellectual adventure and creative risk that formerly characterized arts education."
