Embracing the Digital Platform: Revitalized Multimedia Space

The projects featured currently on this page include projects from previous gnovis staffers that pioneered this format and argumentation style. In the coming months, we will build upon this catalog of projects as we continue to examine the intersection of communication, culture and technology in our new online space.
To best utilize gnovis’ digital platform, this revitalized ‘multimedia’ space will feature student academic arguments presented in various forms throughout the semester. In today’s norm technology integration, media literacy demands succinct arguments that mimic the clarity and emphasis of traditional academic spaces. As gnovis has revamped our online presence, we will present more digital projects within our blog and journal space in a similar vein as our academic discussions through blogs.
Lauren Barnett

Lauren graduated from the University of North Carolina at Asheville in 2008 with a BA in Mass Communication. Upon graduation, and at the suggestion of a friend, she moved to Philadelphia to explore the 'real world' outside of academia. Ousting herself out of her comfort zone and plopping herself in the middle of a diverse city with thriving culture, she found work in a pizza restaurant, which was quickly followed by a return to the academic world, with a position on a peer-reviewed science journal. Simultaneously, Lauren worked closely with a youth literacy, after-school program, participating in the local art scene, hoping to one-day return to an academic setting separate from images of dissected nude mice. As a first year student in the CCT program, Lauren's interest currently include from net neutrality, education and technology, and the new role of journalism in the era of the Internet.
