About Kimon Keramidas

As Assistant Professor and Director of the Digital Media Lab at the Bard Graduate Center, I am in charge of implementing digital media across the curriculum of my institution and in research projects and exhibitions. My research focuses on the study of media through the lenses of political economy and sociology of culture and the integration of interactive technology into pedagogy. I have taught courses in interface design, media and materiality, artifacts in the age of new media, digital information fluency, theatre design, and performance, and am curating an exhibition on interface design that will open at the BGC in spring of 2015. I am also Director of Digital Initiatives at the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center, co-founder and member of the editorial collective of The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy, and co-founder and member of the steering committee of NYCDH. When not teaching and working I play games on both fields (soccer) and screens (Xbox, etc.) and consume sundry televisual culture. Oh yeah, and I'm a mean baker.
