NOVEMBER_2011. New Media students under the tutelage of Bill Kuykendall and Joline Blais have won three of the coveted Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Fellowships for 2011-12 at the University of Maine. The projects honored include a narrative based on the Birdsacre Wildlife Sanctuary, a memory network for Swan's Island, and an alternative reality game for gardeners called GIY (Grow It Yourself).
The New Media Department was disproportionately represented in the winners of this new CLAS Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Fellowship, which is developed to enhance and increase undergraduate student involvement in faculty supervised research and creative activity. The proposal must be submitted by an undergraduate student with support from a faculty supervisor.
New Media major Cynthia Merrill, advised by Bill Kuykendall, proposed the Birdsacre Wildlife Sanctuary: A New Media Narrative Told through Cordelia’s Eyes. Also under Kuykendall's wing is Sarah Nichols, whose New Media capstone is the Swan’s Island New Media Memory Project, which hopes to produce an online repository of stories told by residents of this island community.
New Media major Anna Werner, advised by Joline Blais, proposed GIY (Grow It Yourself). Modelled on the strategy of DIY ("Do It Yourself"), GIY proposes an Alternative Reality Game on mobile devices to get undergraduates motivated to garden and thus re-connect to sustainable food practices.
Each fellowship provides a 00 award for the student, and additional funding, if needed, to cover costs associated with the project. This year’s fellowships were supported with funds from the Intensive English Institute.
