McNair Scholars


Amanda Denbeck


     As a dedicated student working towards two degrees, the first a Bachelor of Science in Emerging Media and Digital Arts, and the second a Bachelor of Fine Arts accompanied by a double ­minor in Art History and Film, Television, and Convergent Media. I will be the first of my family to graduate with an advanced degree in Spring of 2015.

     Research interests include advertising, design history, art history, film, television in relation to gender studies, and cultural studies. I am driven to learn theories of how visual media influences society. This includes being able to bring these theories into my own work as a digital artist. I aim be a critically informed creator of digital media.

     I plan to use my studies as a digital art professor to inspire future potential students by sharing my love for digital art theory and practice. I will also be actively engaged in current research in digital art and visual culture.

     I have completed internships at Britt Festivals (2012) and Blackstone Audio (2013). I have also been involved in the production of several art projects off ­campus and on, such as the Women of a Certain Age 2013 Calendar (used to raise funds for the Southern Oregon Humane Society), and Temple Emek Shalom’s Auction materials. I lead and founded the week­long event entitled the Emerging Media Convention.
