About the Chapter, by Professor Marina Hassapopoulou
Rather than writing about the memorable and innovative projects my students have produced over the years from the instructor’s perspective, I thought it would be more productive to actually invite students to speak about their projects in their own words and provide inspiration for current and future Cinema Studies students. Our collective objective in this chapter is to acknowledge the importance of student contributions (as well as of low/no-budget process-oriented experimental projects) to the expansion of interdisciplinary fields, and also proposing ways of enabling students to have a more active stake in shaping and actively contributing to their fields and objects of study. We have included hands-on analog, mixed media, and low-tech examples that aim to provide an expanded understanding of both the Digital Humanities and Remix Studies. These projects provide a sample of the many creative examples of multimedia scholarship that have emerged out of the Cinema Studies department in recent years.
