The Ammerman Center for Arts and Technology gathers faculty and students who study and contribute to the symbiotic relationship between technology and the arts. Through interdisciplinary collaborations and individual work, students and faculty not only promote proficiency in working with technology, but also deepen the understanding of the meaning and role of technology within the larger context of the liberal arts. Students explore issues in arts and technology through individual studies, course work, internships, research assistantships, an associates program, and a certificate program that incorporates an intensive research project. To encourage imaginative, as well as speculative, thinking about the use of technology in the arts, the Center also sponsors colloquia, symposia, special events, exhibitions, performances, and interactions with visiting scholars.
The Ammerman Center for Arts and Technology was officially incorporated in 1991 and is named for Connecticut College alumna and long-time trustee, Judith Ammerman '60, who made a generous contribution to endow the center.
