Figure/Ground Communication – Interviews with Shannon Mattern and Peter Haratonik
Figure/Gound Communication is a student-led website serving as a hub for academic resources in the field of Media Studies and the Social Sciences.
On August 12th Figure/Ground’s Gina Conley interviewed Shannon Mattern, and back in February Laureano Ralon spoke with Peter Haratonik. Both interviews explore the motivation to pursue a career in academia, how academia has changed over the years, and the impact of the “age of interruption” on classroom learning. These interviews and the other resources available at Figure/Ground will be of particular use to any students considering a PhD degree, or anyone working in academia or education in general.
