We’re excited to welcome graduate student admits to the Color of Media’s 2017 Open House! All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to attend and learn more about the diverse ecology of new media activities taking place on campus.
The Color of New Media Working Group seeks to add new voices, and new lenses, to the new media studies “conversation,” in order to diversify and broaden the scope of that conversation. The overarching goals of this group are to: share resources on issues of race/ethnicity/nation and new media, to foster the creation of new scholarship on these issues, and to nurture fellowship and social networking among scholars, particularly scholars of color, working in the field of new media studies.
The open house is part of UC Berkeley’s Graduate Student Diversity Day, an introduction to the UC Berkeley campus for underrepresented graduate students who have been admitted to the University. Presentations, discussion, and department visits will address the experiences of students from groups that have historically been excluded from, or who have experienced barriers to participation in higher education.
