Remediation Project Exhibit

In November 2022, Dr. Dolan's "American Gothic" class held an exhibit in the Collaboratory on their Remediation Projects. These students were asked to transform one piece from class into another form of media. Books were turned into paintings and models, stories into knit figurines, and films into video games. Dr. Dolan noted, "Students always impress me with how creative they are in these projects. One of the best parts is how closely they work with the original source material."
