‘It's never too late’: DEMAN Weekend keynote speakers share their paths to arts and media careers

(09/05/19 4:03am)

When Dave Karger, Trinity ’95, entered Duke’s Career Center as a first-year to seek an internship in the entertainment industry, he was met with surprise — the employees do not typically encounter first-years. Still, that one visit led Karger to an unpaid summer internship in New York. Now, as a TCM host and correspondent for the Today Show and IMDB, Karger traces his career back to that first-year visit. 


What comes after certainty

(09/05/19 4:00am)

There is invariably a point near the end of every summer when, freed from the helpful bounds of the workweek, the days begin to bleed into one another. Sometimes it’s in July, sometimes later in August, but up to this point in my life I’ve rarely gone through a summer without that familiar period of limbo, when the only responsibilities are the ones you give yourself.

(09/05/19 4:01am)

For the past five years, the Center for Documentary Studies (known more commonly as CDS) has presented Audio Under the Stars, an outdoor audio festival created by Jenny March and Elizabeth Friend. Featuring themes such as “Night and Day,” “Super/Natural,” and “Appetites and Desires,” the festival brings many in the Duke community and Durham together to lay out under the stars and listen to audio documentaries, pieces composed simply of sound unaccompanied by video.

(09/05/19 4:02am)

Since its founding in 1991 by graduate students, the Arts of the Moving Images’ Screen/Society series has been the center of eclectic film programming on campus. Each semester, co-programming coordinators Hank Okazaki and Jason Sudak curate Screen/Society’s offerings. Free to both the Duke and Durham communities, the program’s selection offers an assortment of films, with an emphasis on international and arthouse films that are not otherwise easily accessible. 


Old ghosts and the question of reparations

(09/05/19 4:00am)

We thought of the [Black] men, women, and children that had gone into the buildings to make up Duke University...the blood to be squeezed out of black bodies to build a university for white minds… only white minds… If white people had labored in the factories of the American tobacco industry for less than enough on which to live, they have had the satisfaction of knowing that their children may reap the benefits in a school that provides the very best training. If [Blacks] have done the same thing, it must pierce their hearts to know that Duke University has been built for every other race under the sun but theirs...[the African American] stands alone as the one human being on earth too loathsome in the eyes of the American white man to share the benefits of Duke University.

The Duke Entertainment, Media & Arts Network — more commonly referred to as DEMAN — will host its annual DEMAN Arts & Media weekend Nov. 1 and 2 on Duke's campus.

What on earth are “Guac and Talks”?)
