Thinking in Place Symposium

On September 20, 2021, Dr. Stephanie Tripp gave her symposium, “Thinking in Place: Writing the Immersive Essay.” Dr. Tripp is an Associate Professor of Communication and program director for the MA in Social and Emerging Media. She specializes in the theories and practices of digital media, especially as they pertain to notions of place and community identification. Her talk was about our increasingly photorealistic spaces and places, thanks to advances in technology, which bring us immersive experiences such as the Harry Potter World at Universal and Galaxy’s Edge at Walt Disney World and the ways in which such immersive places might inspire the way we write.
