Rebecca Chamlee: 2006-07 Faculty Development Grant Report

Excerpt:

I attended the conference “Action/Interaction: Book/Arts” at the Columbia College, Chicago, Center For Book & Paper Arts June 8–10, 2007 in Chicago, Illinois. The conference was organized to raise the level of critical discourse in artists’ books by getting students, educators and practitioners together to talk about their activities and to examine how educators can create experiences to expand the field.

Attending this conference greatly influenced the development of my lesson plans for the Otis Lab Press and Book Structures classes for Communication Arts that I teach. I was excited and inspired to represent Otis and to see the work and meet other representatives of book arts programs and centers around the country.

I have made a small edition book reporting my experiences at the conference that will be available from the Otis library.
