Jennifer Ware, a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at UNC, is collaborating with Carolina Performing Arts and the Institute for the Arts and Humanities to celebrate the 100th anniversary of “The Rite of Spring.”
Staff writer Sarah Rutherford spoke with Ware about her yearlong fellowship and how she will explore several mediums of communication to generate a digital archive and facilitate interaction between the arts and the classroom.
DAILY TAR HEEL: What led you to partner with CPA and the Institute for the Arts and Humanities?
JENNIFER WARE: I saw it as a unique opportunity to bring my documentary and story-telling skills to “The Rite of Spring.”
I have a background in broadcast journalism. I worked for a (top) 30 market in Milwaukee straight out of college — the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I have a master’s in film directing and I recently graduated in August from N.C. State University with a doctoral degree in communication, rhetoric and digital media.
