A Smart Look at the Future of Television // In Collaboration With Quinnipiac University's School of Communications
Hacktivision seeks to be a “public intellectual” space where scholars, practitioners, and others grappling with the future of television and online video can speak in terms that are meaningful to one another about the news, trends, technologies, and ideas that are shaping the way we make, watch, and share moving images.
We’re a growing community—see our contributors page.
Thanks, we love ideas and feedback! Please contact us.
Quinnipiac University’s School of Communications is a home for many scholars and practitioners concerned with the future of television. It houses the state-of-the-art Ed McMahon Mass Communications Center, which trains students in the latest technologies for television and multimedia production. And it annually bestows the prestigious Fred Friendly First Amendment Award to television journalists who “have shown courage and forthrightness in preserving the rights set forth in the First Amendment.”
The School of Communications is home to Emmy winners, animators, and interactive designers, and houses numerous programs that take a special interest in television and online video, including the departments of Film, Video, and Interactive Media; Journalism; Media Studies; and Public Relations. It also features a masters program in Interactive Media.
In light of this common and sustained interest, the School of Communications provides financial support for Hacktivision, and seeks to serve as a gathering point for scholarship and public discussion on the future of television and online video. However, the views expressed by individual contributors should be regarded as their own and not a reflection of those held by Quinnipiac, the School of Communication, or any individual department.
The site welcomes contributions from Quinnipiac faculty, but contributors and editors are sought and welcomed from among scholars and professionals affiliated with other schools and organizations. The goal is to host a discussion that extends beyond the bounds of any one institution.
