This is an opportunity for students to work with faculty from a diverse set of disciplines on creative and scholarly projects. Students will come away with invaluable skills in library and archival research practices, visual arts studio practices, laboratory practices, film/media production practices, critical research and writing, and much more. Critical and Creative Practices is comprised of a diverse group of artists, theorists, scientists, mathematicians, writers, filmmakers and other cultural workers whose interdisciplinary fields of study sit at the crossroads between critical theoretical studies and creative engagement.

Anne de Marcken uses creative writing and digital media production as methods of inquiry. Her process-based work results in short stories, personal essays, longer hybrid narratives, time-based forms of these things (films and videos), and sometimes web environments. Her current areas of inquiry include climate change and the interactions of place and identity, in particular as related to the idea of home. Students working with Anne will have opportunities to work on one or more literary projects in the early development phase. Activities will include concept development, research, preliminary structuring, proposal writing, grant writing, and critique of early draft creative writing. Students may also work with Anne to continue development of an internet-based project related to climate change.
