Joline Blais

Fiction writer Joline Blais is an Assistant Professor at Polytechnic
University where she directs the Digital Media Studies Program. Previously
she pioneered the development of the Media Studies program in SCPD at New
York University. Informed by a background in history and comparative
literature at Harvard and University of Pennsylvania, her writing explores
the way that introducing alternative viewpoints can destabilize the
traditional plots found in mainstream literature and cinema. She presented
_Fair e-Tales_, a DHTML-based fable created with Keith Frank and Jon
Ippolito, at the Digital Art Conference in Atlanta in 1999. She has recently
completed _Sorties_, her first novel.

This speaker will participate in the Graduate Programs panel.
