Renowned Composer Tapped to Deliver Spring LAS Dean’s Lecture
In light of the significant changes to media brought about by the digital revolution, why is it important for artists creating with modern technology to remain mindful of our analog past? How should today’s artists engage with the world in order to create work that reflects seismic shifts in culture and media consumption?
Join Dean Deborah H. Holdstein for the Spring 2013 LAS Dean’s Lecture as she welcomes Emmy award-winning composer and educator Laura Karpman, who will share her thoughts on what it means to be an artist in the 21st Century.
A Q&A will follow Karpman’s lecture, followed by a reception with food, music, and refreshments. Sponsored by the Office of the Dean, School of Liberal Arts and Sciences, as well as Paul and Nancy Knapp.
Laura Karpman, PhD, is a four-time Emmy award-winner who has scored music for a variety of media, including films, television, and video games. She is a visiting assistant professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, in the School of Theater, Film, and Television.
