Presented as part of the Emergent Landscape Critical Conversations speaker series and hosted by the masters programs in Emergent Media. Karen Mittelman, the new executive director at the Vermont Arts Council, leads a discussion with Peter Gilbert, executive director of the Vermont Humanities Council, and Robin Perlah, program director of the masters programs in Emergent Media, on the impact of digital technology on the arts and humanities. They look at the power of digital tools (such as games for change) to enhance learning opportunities and expand access, but also consider the challenges of building genuine community in a digital “town square.” Karen reflects upon her experience as director of the Division of Public Programs at the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) in Washington DC, where she was instrumental in funding digital projects, such as Walden, A Game.
