Congrats to our Dr. Roger Hallas (Associate Professor), who has been awarded $33,000 from the George A. and Eliza Gardner Howard Foundation to complete his book project titled A Medium Seen Otherwise: Photography and Documentary Film.

One of nine fellowships awarded by the foundation, the funds will help finance the last leg of his project, which explores the intersection between photography and a documentary film and how the combination of the two is perceived by its audience. Read the full press release here.

In addition, Dr. Hallas is currently a Syracuse University Humanities Center Faculty Fellow from the College of Arts and Sciences. We can't wait to see the final project!
