Announcing a Joint RIPR/RISD Research Project


As part of RIPR’s goal to improve its understanding of and service to culturally diverse and geographically dispersed communities across Rhode Island, RISD D+M is pleased to provide this preliminary project plan outlining the initial phases of a collaborative research project by students from the Department!

On September 25th, a multidisciplinary team of D+M graduate students (who push past the “digitally obvious” such as podcasts or apps and examine a large range of culturally-based social infrastructures) met with This American Life’s Ira Glass to examine the historical and current interaction between RIPR and the broader community, identify opportunities for new community inclusion and participation.
