University of Rochester Student Opportunities
Climate Interventions: Performing Arts & New Media
This humanities course based in the arts combines the study of performing, visual arts and new media with history and theory to convey a breadth of stories about the human experience of climate change. In this interdisciplinary, collaborative course, students will be introduced to the multi-faceted use of the arts in designing for and expressing a vision for a sustainable future. Working with community partners, our research and story collection in the Adirondack park will be used to inspire projects in the course. Collaboration, design thinking, and the iterative design process will be used to produce performances and art work that respond to the stories of the changing climate in the Adirondack park. It will move through multiple units of theoretical study as students simultaneously work on their creative projects.Enroll now
ADK Climate Project: Audio and Visual Archive
The expectation for research students is that you collaborate with faculty mentors and the digital scholarship lab to catalogue and construct an archive of stories and art collected as part of the ADK Climate Stories Project. This research is for credit. This project can be done remotely. Contact: email@example.com for more information. Weekly meetings with the DSL and faculty members will take place during the semester.
Along with faculty members, summer sustainability fellows will be working to collect climate stories in a variety of locations in the park and participate in the planning and execution of an artist’s retreat in Minerva, NY. Fellows will also have the opportunity to live in the Adirondacks and work a with a sustainability leader, The Wild Center in Tupper Lake, NY.Learn more about the fellowship
