A new interdisciplinary course will start this fall, focusing on “Entrepreneurship and Digital Media.”

The course, supported by a donation from Michael Rapaport ’59, will tackle how technology plays a role in the events of today. Such topics may include war and protest, environmental disasters and technology in society. Lectures and discussions will focus on creative innovation and digital media across many disciplines.

“The goal of the course is to provide intellectual innovation of thought as applied to real world settings through new media technologies,” said Christine Henseler, associate professor of Spanish and coordinator of the course.

The fall’s course will be taught by Ashraf Ghaly, professor of engineering; Michele Angrist, associate professor of political science; Kristina Striegnitz, assistant professor of computer science; Alvaro Jarrin, visiting assistant professor of anthropology; and Anastasia Pease, lecturer of English.

Registration for the course will be first come, first served.
