Sterlin Harjo tour
Sterlin Harjo Master Class

Sterlin Harjo tour

Eighteen Film Studies majors visited filmmaker Sterlin Harjo’s writing studio on Nov. 8 for a tour and discussion. Harjo and the students discussed his hit Hulu/FX show, Reservation Dogs, and received insights into his career and the writing and directing process.
Harjo has directed three feature films, as well as the comedy/drama series Reservation Dogs, all set in Oklahoma and centered primarily around Native American people and content.
Media studies alumni panel

During TU Homecoming 2023, seven recent media studies alumni virtually visited a class session that combined Associate Professor Emily Contois’ media studies senior project with Associate Professor Mark Brewin’s Intro to Media Studies. Representing TV broadcasting, public relations, digital marketing, and more, the alumni shared details of their job search and professional experiences and gave valuable advice to students — those at the beginning of their studies and those about to embark upon their own careers.

Panelists included Katie Alexander, web content producer for KOTV News On 6, Isaac Hamby, marketing coordinator for Community Care, and Lexie Tafoya, digital content creator for KTUL NewsChannel 8.


School of Music WindSync guest lecture and performance

In November, students from the School of Music attended a performance and guest lecture by WindSync, a major touring ensemble presented by the Chamber Music Tulsa. “WindSync appears in performances and festivals around the world and are one of only a few wind quintets to have won several of the most prestigious chamber music competitions,” said Applied Assistant Professor of Music David Carter. “The School of Music is very lucky to have a partner like Chamber Music Tulsa helping us provide up-close performances and discussions with some of today’s most influential musicians.”

The quintet performed selections by Miguel del Aguila, Mozart, Mellits, and Gershwin.
