The Plangere Culture Lab (PCL) is a unique mix of dedicated digital spaces, dedicated computer programs for video, audio, and web-based editing, and digital recording equipment. We provide pedagogical support for English Department students, faculty, and staff who are looking to develop digitally enabled creative, research, or compositionally-based projects. Whether you're editing a documentary video project, diving into a digital research project about subversive trends in the films of Charlie Chaplin, or writing an online guidebook for first-year students, the PCL is happy to assist.
In addition, the PCL specializes in exploring how digital technologies can be incorporated into new or existing English courses. We also provide support for projects that utilize introductory multimedia based programs and applications such as Audacity, online publishing platforms such as Wordpress, or more advanced editing programs such as Premier. The PCL welcomes inquiries from faculty interested in exploring potential course development or assignment/project redesign options, students undertaking creative or research-based projects with digital or multimedia aspects, or department staff looking to develop digitally-based projects or events for their professional or personal interests.
