Please join the Digital Writing & Research Lab for Dr. Laurie Gries’ lecture, “Doing Digital Visual Studies,” on Friday, February 24th, at 3pm. The talk will be held at the Texas Union Eastwoods Room (UNB 2.102).
This month, the Digital Writing & Research Lab is delighted to welcome Dr. Laurie Gries from the Department of Communication at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Dr. Gries will present a talk titled “Doing Digital Visual Studies,” drawing upon her extensive work in visual rhetoric and the digital humanities, including her recently published and award-winning book, Still Life with Rhetoric: A New Materialist Approach for Visual Rhetorics (Utah State University Press, 2015). In her lecture, Dr. Gries will share examples from a current digital project in which scholars explore how augmented reality, 3D modeling, glitch production, and computational analysis have potential to invent new productive visual methodologies. She will model how computational analysis can assist us in studying the ways images circulate and transform across media, form, and function as they enter into various collective activities across the world.
