Description

Art is often hailed as a way that people make sense of the complicated world around us. This process of “making sense” is also described in theoretical models that come from communications, information science, human computer interaction, and other disciplines. However, when it comes to figuring out new and complex processes, existing models do not adequately or specifically account for effects of culture or privilege on those processes or behaviors. In this session, Professor Tarr examines the process of teaching the technically complex process of filmmaking–itself an industry of problematic representations and ongoing lack of visibility and recognition for less-privileged groups.
