Mass Media and American Politics – News and Ad Projects

by Andrew Petrus

Below are some our favorite projects from the Mass Media and American Politics course this semester. All of these videos were done as course assignments and in no way reflect any views by the college or necessarily the students that created them. Also, despite the content of some the videos these were all student projects none of the videos were paid for by any outside entity.

Stop Motion

by boquirec

Hey all,

I am currently taking Todd Arsenault’s Digital Studio course this semester. For our second project we were presented with the task of shooting a stop motion video. Listed below is my final submission:

 

 

I’m not too satisfied with the results. I think I got too caught up with the technical aspects of filming that I neglected other important aspects such as editing and audio. At least I know for next time!

Nelson_Mandela_painted_portrait_P1040890Students in The Cold War in Southern Africa created podcasts profiling a twentieth-century Southern African leader. Sarah Koch, Weston Hayes, and Luke Kaledin chose Nelson Mandela because they had learned about his leadership of the African National Congress (ANC) in South Africa, the founding of the ANC’s armed wing, Umkhonto we Sizwe (“spear of the nation” in isiZulu) following the government’s decision in 1960 to ban the ANC, and Mandela’s subsequent arrest and imprisonment. Mandela became a symbol of apartheid’s injustice until his release from prison in 1990 and election as South African president in 1994. Mandela died at the age of 95 at the end of the fall semester 2013.

Writing in & for Digital Environments-Blogs-Fall 2013

by BSL

Screen shot 2013-11-21 at 1.16.07 PM

Description from Digital Humanities at Dickinson article:

Writing in and for Digital Environments (WRPG 211) is a new course designed to encourage students to think about how to convey a thought or point of view using more than just letters and words on a sheet of paper. Of course, there is no substitute for well thought-out and aptly articulated writing, and first and foremost the course uses the electronic environment to challenge and develop students’ writing skills. But it also teaches basic proficiency in WordPress and other common online platforms (Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Facebook, etc.), and course assignments require regular reflection on the writing process, and on the tailoring information to specific audiences and media. Each student will design, build, and begin regularly posting to her or his own blog.

 

Here is a list of the student’s blogs for the semester.  Click through to see what topics they chose to write about.

Fall 2012 Student Projects

by mariel fernandez

Another semester is coming to a close so what better time to showcase all of the fantastic student projects that were created this fall.  Here are examples from just some of the fun classes we were able to work with.

Sustainability

“The Evolution of a Cheeseburger” is Professor Scott Boback’s FYSM where students research where our food comes from and how food production and our eating habits have changed through the industrialized production of food.  Students chose a topic to research and created a podcast that includes interviews with experts on the subject.

One student chose “How to Grow a Personal Garden”.  Have a listen below!

__________________________________________________________________

Jenn Halpin and Matt Steiman’s course “The Pleasure, Politics and Production of Food” allows students to learn, in-depth, everything that goes into being a 21st century farmer.  Jenn and Matt should know, as they run the Dickinson College Organic Farm.  Students researched different topics related to farming and food production.

Here is a playlist of all 6 of the videos the students created!

Here is a sample of one of the projects.  Another great one by Emily Bowie.

 First Year Seminars

Professor Karl Qualls’ FYS Utopias, Dystopias and ‘Engineering Progress’ looked into different aspects of society and devices we use to ‘fix’ what is wrong in our communities.  His class incorporated multiple technology based projects including blogging and creating podcasts and videos.

Their podcast project looked into different areas of Dickinson/Carlisle that could be improved.  It is intended to be a persuasive piece which incorporates the student’s own opinion.

This one looks into a “Student’s Connection to Education”.

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

 

Their final project was to create a video that was a “persuasive project that connects to a class theme or seeks to illustrate and solve a current social, political, economic, or cultural problem”.

The following example is an in-depth look at the Indian city of Chandagar.

Abroad & Foreign Language

Thoughts on that?

After graduating from Dickinson last spring, Anna moved to Toulouse, France to work at the Dickinson in France Center and teach English at Lycée Ozenne, a French high school. On her blog, Anna discusses French lifestyle and culture, complementing her experiences and observations with delicious culinary adventures.

Russian Rooms: An Exciting investigation of how Russians organize their personal space

Curious about Russian culture or just how other people live? Check out Maria Rubin’s artistic investigation of Russian rooms and lifestyles. Documented on her blog, Maria interviews a variety of people living in Moscow, photographing them and their living space, to create a unique portrait of Russian life and culture. Russian Roomsis still a work in progress but Maria provides this brief description: (translated from Russian)

“This mini research project exploits our natural curiosity about the man and his personal space. We see the room and try to intuitively guess: who lives in it? We tried to imagine the inhabitants – the owner of the space, mentally draw a portrait of him, and then compare with the actual expected. On one hand, it was important to take a picture of a person beyond the interior of the room to emphasize his personality, but on the other it would update the link between man and the place he spends much of his time.”

Experimental Fictions

Read creative posts by students in Professor David Ball’s “Experimental Fictions” course.  Students are given assignments to write poems and short stories while giving them writing constraints that ensure that the piece is anything from your standard research paper.  Examples include only using 100 random scrabble tiles to write or writing by using only one vowel throughout entire post.

Education

Professor Liz Lewis assigns her students to create presentations for her Educational Psychology using Prezi.  They then descend upon the Media Center and give poster presentations to the classmates and others just passing through.  Here is a gallery of images from this years showcase.
