Contemporary Art, Design and New Media Art Histories (CADN) Conference
Every year CADN students organize a conference or a speaker series based on a theme that they feel speaks to the zeitgeist informing the practices and scholarship of art, design and new media. Notable speakers are brought in as keynotes, and the conferences often involve exhibitions and performances. These events attract students, historians and academics from across the country and internationally. The experience gained in creating and staging such projects provides an invaluable inroad into professional practices and enlarges the students' network of colleagues.
