Creativity and Collaboration in the Digital Age

 “In a panel moderated by James Paradis, five former Comparative Media Studies (CMS) students discuss their personal experiences within the CMS program and the impact it has had on their understanding, interpretation, and implementation of creativity in the digital age.  Creativity may be perceived, traditionally, as the “artist or thinker or maker of things in solitude bringing forth what has before not had form. “ Nevertheless, creativity in the digital age—the age of the Internet—requires us to reconsider its boundaries. Beginning in the 19th century, anthropologists began to consider the evolutionary implications of culture concluding that “culture may also be created by all the people who exist in it.” Today, the Internet allows us to influence each other, to create “culture,” in ways that we would not have been able to consider before its presence.
