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.

Marilyn Freeman (writing and media arts) is an interdisciplinary artist working primarily with time-based art for the page, the screen, and installation. Presently, Marilyn is particularly focused on the video essay as an ascendant form for creative and critical experiments with text, sound, and image. Her immediate projects include two video essay productions and a book— Crafting the Video Essay  (University of Chicago Press, 2014). These projects provide opportunities for advanced students to assist with research and to enhance media arts skills through working directly with Marilyn in preproduction, production, and post-production of the video essays.
