Student Project Presentations and "Beyond the Front Porch 2017" Exhibition Opening
Beginning at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 30, twelve students graduating with an undergraduate Certificate in Documentary Studies from the Center for Documentary Studies will present their final projects to the public and receive their certificates, followed by a celebratory light dinner and opening reception for an exhibition of their work. The Certificate in Documentary Studies program attracts undergraduates to the Center for Documentary Studies from across the arts and sciences. Under the guidance of Nancy Kalow, Chris Sims, and Alex Harris, twelve seniors in the Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 Documentary Capstone Seminars—ten from Duke and two from UNC–Chapel Hill–completed a final project as the culmination of their documentary studies classes. An exhibition of the graduating seniors' work, Beyond the Front Porch 2017, is on view in the Porch and University Galleries at the Center for Documentary Studies through November 11, 2017.
