Mark Olson is Visiting Assistant Professor of Visual Studies at Duke University. He teaches courses on media (new & old - theory, practice, & history) and medicine & visual culture. As a compliment to his early contributions to the MacArthur Foundation's Digital Media & Learning Initiative, he now collaborates on the development of The Wired Project, a new interdisciplinary research initiative that connects the study of the material culture of art history, architecture and archaeology with new media modes of representation and visualization. Olson is the former Director of New Media & Information Technologies for HASTAC (Humanties, Arts, Sciences & Technology Advanced Collaboratory).

Wednesdays at the Center (WATC) is a topical weekly noontime series in which distinguished scholars, artists, journalists, and policymakers speak informally about their work in conversation with the audience. Presented by Duke University’s John Hope Franklin Center and the John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute in conjunction with other campus partners, all events in the series are free and open to the public. A light lunch is served. No reservations are necessary, and vouchers to cover parking costs for one hour in the Duke Medical Center parking decks are provided (#2 & #3 in this map:
