Support Documentary Studies

The B.A. in Interdisciplinary Study's faculty-initiated concentration in Documentary Studies is looking for financial support.

As a relatively new concentration at the University at Albany, we have established a fund to support our students in their pursuit of a variety of initiatives. Our students will work on radio productions, films, photographic exhibits, Web sites, and narrative research and writing projects. They will explore major and minor issues in history, art, music, science, environmental studies, technology, media, politics, foreign policy, and health -- and they will also help document the rich history of this region, our state, and points beyond.

Serious and high-quality documentary projects are often quite costly to bring to fruition, as they require specialized equipment, sometimes expensive media, and high transportation costs. Often, student projects can severely tax individual and family resources, and the University has limited funds and scholarship opportunities to support such work. That's where you can help.

Please help us to give students the resources they need to produce excellent work, by making a tax-deductible contribution through the Documentary Studies Fund.  For information on how to do this, please contact the concentration's director, Prof. Gerald Zahavi at:



Thank you.
