The T600 Speaker Series intends to foster cross-campus, interdisciplinary, national and international debate on research and teaching in the field of media arts and sciences. Every semester faculty, graduate students, and guests from the wider IU community are encouraged or invited to participate as speakers, discussants,
panelists, and guests. We welcome any and all suggestions, and look forward to seeing you in RTV180 soon, and often.
• classic single presentation (between 15-45 minutes, with 20-30 minutes of Q&A)
• multiple presenters (ideally featuring two or three graduate students from different units at IU talking about a similar research theme/topic)
• debate (between at least two faculty members representing different views on a key issue of debate in the field of media arts & sciences)
• roundtable (generally featuring issues related to professional academic/ pedagogical conduct and practice)
• demonstrations (of creative work, design and production, also including teaching workshops)
• book/journal article/conference paper/exhibition showcases (where one or more authors/creators present their recent or upcoming work).
T600 can be taken as a 1 credit hour course for graduate students from any unit at IU, and is required for Telecommunications PhD students. Students pass (or fail) the course on the basis of a perfect attendance record, and by submitting a review (in the formats of a blogpost - between 100 and 500 words - and a tweet up to 140 characters) within 24 hours of each session attended.
