Training Media Archivists: The Moving Image Archiving and Preservation Program (MIAP) at New York University
Monday, October 14 from 4 - 5 pm
Fine Arts Building | Room 53
Program Director Juana Suárez will offer an overview of the Moving Image Archiving and Preservation Program (MIAP) at NYU. MIAP is a two-year, interdisciplinary course of study that trains future professionals to manage and preserve collections of film, video, digital and multimedia works. MIAP combines humanities (the history and context of moving images) with science and engineering (the technical processes of how media are created, deteriorate, and can be restored) and ensures constant exposure to real-world experiences. This presentation will highlight the different components of the program, rapid change within the profession, and professional opportunities for media archivists.
