Thesis Critique Week 2011

This year’s fall grad student thesis critiques took place on an accelerated schedule this year, moving up to the week of September 26. Due to city and world events that affected the academic calendar, Interdisciplinary Arts students returning to campus after summer break were thrust back into the spotlight after only a three-week running start to present their thesis proposals. The work discussed will be presented in the spring 2012.

The critique process is an integral part of the Columbia Interarts graduate education, where students present their work as it exists in the moment, and discuss their artistic inquiry and process with faculty and their fellow grad students. Third year graduate students present work in the fall session, and second year and MA students present their work in the spring.
