a secondary field for Harvard graduate students
Welcome to our spring newsletter for Critical Media Practice, the secondary field for Harvard graduate students who are integrating media creation into their academic work.
Jared McCormick's online interface "A View From The View" will be on view in this April's inaugural CMP Capstone Exhibition highlighting recent and current student projects.


  CMP welcomes four new students to the secondary field: Buse Atkas from the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Francisco Alarcon from the Visual and Environmental Studies Department, and Noha Mokhtar and Randa Wabe from the Anthropology Department.

  CMP has formed an official partnership with the online journal Sensate.  Students have the opportunity to collaborate in producing content for the journal which publishes media-based scholarship.

  A delegation of CMP faculty and students representing Harvard’s graduate-level work in the arts traveled to Paris in December for an intensive exchange at the arts/research PhD program within Université Paris Sciences et Lettres (PSL).

  Check out guest blog posts by CMP students Emilio Vavarella, whose installation "Do You Like Cyber" premiered at Rome’s MAXXI National Museum of the 21st Century Arts, and Anya Yermakova, who recently completed an art-science residency in Djerassi, California. 

  CMP students graduating this spring will present their capstone works in progress for critique this February through early April. Upcoming dates will be posted on our events page.

SACRe student Elizaveta Konovalova presents her work at the PSL-Harvard exchange in Paris this past December.
