DOUBLE MAJOR // April Edition: Digital Storytelling + Science Fiction

Tuesday, 14 April 2015, 7:00 p.m.

 
Join us for the April edition of DOUBLE MAJOR, where we’ll hear from two passionate experts, each speaking for 20 minutes about their subject, after which there will be a Q&A addressing both topics. One speaker is from the Ottawa-Gatineau community, and one is from the Carleton community. DOUBLE MAJOR is a fun and friendly way to stimulate discussion of seemingly disparate topics, and to make new connections between people and ideas.
 
Digital Storytelling (Susan Murphy) + Science Fiction (David Hamilton)
 
DOUBLE MAJOR is brought to you by Carleton University Art Gallery and the Carleton University Alumni Association.
 
Speakers:
Susan Murphy has been working in media and communications for 25 years. She is an award winning television producer with hundreds of shows to her credit. Susan is a partner and digital storyteller at Jester Creative Inc., where she helps people find compelling ways to connect with their audience through video, web design, social media, and training. Susan is Head of Social Media for the Cracking-Up the Capital Comedy Festival, a non-profit organization that raises awareness and funds for mental health in the Ottawa community.
 
David Hamilton is a contract instructor with the Department of English Literature at Carleton University, specializing in science fiction and the evolution of the novel form. His research interests also include the confluence of modern science, art and literature in the early 20th century, and in the dialogic nature of reading. Prior to joining Carleton University, David spent most of his career with Indian and Northern Affairs Canada.
