Kyja Kristjansson-Nelson Named MN Professor of the Year

Film Professor, Filmmaker is MSUM’s 11th CASE Professor of the Year

View an interview with Kyja here.

The art of filmmaking balances the big picture against the small picture details, said Minnesota State University Moorhead film studies Professor Kyja Kristjansson-Nelson. That harmony is also central to the teaching and learning process, a balance Kristjansson-Nelson manages with sharp perspective and fluid athleticism, which is why she was named the 2014 Minnesota Professor of the Year by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching during a November 20 ceremony in Washington, D.C. Kristjansson-Nelson is the 11th professor at MSU Moorhead to be recognized by the Carnegie Foundation.

The U.S. Professors of the Year awards program celebrates outstanding instructors across the country. Sponsored by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, it is the only national program to recognize excellence in undergraduate education.

Kristjansson-Nelson joined MSUM’s emerging film studies department in 2006. However, the Fargo South graduate started as an undergraduate at MSUM (astronomy and physics major) before transferring to pursue a film production degree. At the time, MSUM’s program did not include film production, which was added to the curriculum in 2004.

“Film combined all of the things I love—sound, design, music, science, math, light and creative writing,” said Kristjansson-Nelson. “I’m so happy to be a part of MSUM’s film program because this is the exact program I wanted when I was a student.” Read the rest of this entry →

Posted on September 23, 2014

By Kris Kerzman on Sep 21, 2014 at 10:43 p.m.

MOORHEAD – Lin Enger had just gotten off the phone with a reviewer of his new book, “The High Divide.”

It wasn’t the kind of reviewer you might expect. Instead, it was an acquaintance who lent him some ladders and helped him with the daunting task of painting the exterior of his Moorhead home. While they were working, he noticed a box of advance-review copies of the book and got curious, so Enger gave him a copy.

As they arranged a time for the ladders to be picked up, Enger asked his opinion. The verdict? Read the rest of this entry →
