Ron Green (History of Art) and John Davidson (Germanic Languages and Literatures)
This working group aims to stimulate intellectual discussion and community among scholars and citizens of central Ohio around the issues of academic moving-image production. Moving Image is defined as all past, current, and future forms of the audio-visual media arts, such as film, video, television, digital video, animation, and new media. The working group will function to bring together disparate interests to sift through the existing resources at OSU; import advice from experienced leadership internationally in order to explore alternative visions; and build on the experience of the OSU Interdisciplinary Film Studies Committee, which founded the successful Film Studies Program in 2006. A final proposal, by Spring 2012, will define a new interdisciplinary academic program in Moving Image Production.
