Charette: Collaboration & Community
This one-half semester course is framed by the theme of Community and Collaboration. The students and instructor work collaboratively to define and explore “community” as local place and learning environment. They identify and activate connections among charette members and their specified community in order to develop a consensual creative response. Through sustained exploration of one theme, the Charette emphasizes the development of skills for critical and creative thinking, experiential learning, problem-solving, and collaboration. Through materials exploration, making processes, and critique, the Charette forges links with the visual, tactile and manual skill sets taught in other Foundation classes. Each student’s effort, progress, and work will contribute to a collaborative project developed over 7 weeks, to include both a charette documentation log as well as a collaborative 2D, 3D, or 4D form. Offered fall. 1.5 credits.expand collapse
Charette: Self & Other Voices
This one-half semester course is framed by the theme of Self and other Voices. As an exploration of one’s self in relation to culture and society, the course facilitates increased self-knowledge and helps students uncover their views of “other.” The students and instructor work collaboratively to define and explore “other voices,” cultivate connections with those other voices, and develop creative responses. Through sustained exploration of one theme, the Charette gives priority to the development of skills for critical and creative thinking, experiential learning, problem-solving, and collaboration. Through materials exploration, making processes, and critique, the Charette forges links with the visual, tactile, and manual skill sets being taught in other Foundation classes. Each student’s effort, progress, and work will contribute to a project developed over 7 weeks, to include both a charette documentation log and a 2D, 3D, and/or 4D form. Offered fall. 1.5 credits.expand collapse
Course No. LLC477.1 Credits: 3
The purpose of this course is two-fold: first, to determine, through intensive readings in translation from the work of representative poets, what characterizes Chinese poetic achievement and, second to articulate our own informed response to these poems. Primary emphasis will be placed on the lyric mode as it develops from its origins in the Book of Songs (compiled c. 600BCE) through its golden age in the T'ang and Sung dynasties. Continuing attention will be paid to the tension between public and private commitment expressed by poets who choose between, attempt to resolve, or transcend these commitments. Topics for special consideration include the classical Chinese language as a vehicle for poetic expression and Chinese calligraphy as an exercise in dynamic proportions, the technical requirements of two major lyric forms, nature as a source of both inspiration and poetic metaphor, and the didactic and individualist traditions of Chinese literary criticism. Fulfills Humanities/Cultural Studies distribution requirement. Creative Writing Concentration course. 3 credits.expand collapse
