Marilia Kaisar is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Film and Digital Media with a designated emphasis in Visual Studies at UCSC. She holds an MA in Media Studies from Pratt Institute and a Diploma in Architectural Engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Her research and artistic practice explore affect, the body, desire, and technology and how those relationships are designed, represented, and experienced. In her teaching approaches she seeks to incorporate questions about technology and digital tools to imagine, critique, and empower students to design their own learning, and imagine their futures, in our current mediated environments. How can we transform learning from a passive listening, writing, and reading practice into an active involvement of making, sharing and engaging with ideas and experiences?
