Cinema Studies Majors:  Apply to be a FIG Assistant for Fall 2017 for ®emixing Media, ©ritiquing ©ulture with Instructor Andre Sirois

First-Year Programs is now accepting applications for the fall 2017 ®emixing Media, ©ritiquing ©ulture FIG Assistant position!

This is a paid leadership position that helps incoming freshmen adjust to the UO both academically and socially. First-Year Programs has openings that are specifically in need of students familiar with Cinema Studies or Digital Arts.   

®emixing Media, ©ritiquing ©ulture explores how the appropriation, parody, and remixing of media texts (images, ads, music, video, etc) can be a powerful form of cultural critique. Not only will we look at the culture jamming movements of the past and present, but we will apply these concepts and aesthetics to create our own works that turn the media and its messages against itself. At the end of the term we will showcase these works at our own art show/exhibit that we curate and promote as a way of highlighting the practical value of fair use within creative communities.

Application Deadline Extended – Apply by Monday, February 20, 2017
