Temple University and the University of Bergen will subsidize travel and lodging for students to enroll in a special 4 credit summer course in digital storytelling in Bergen, Norway with Temple professor, Dr. Roderick Coover. This is a project-based seminar, with teams of students working together to develop multimedia projects involving different modalities—writing, digital filmmaking, and design— and in the process learning about the history and context of creative practices in digital environments. Students and faculty involved will be coming from digital culture, literature, film, and design. The program will include students and faculty from Temple University, the University of Bergen, the University of West Virginia and the University of Minnesota. Students will follow the seminar with a final project.

“And the Oscar goes to,” she said as she tore, “William Goldenberg, ‘Argo.’”
With those eight words, veteran film editor and Temple alumnus William Goldenberg, BA FMA ’82, won an Academy Award for “Best Film Editing” from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences at the 85th annual Academy Awards ceremony Feb. 24 at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.
