ARTD 7820: Video Art
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

This graduate session is a studio class on the topic of video art. Students, through creative projects, readings, and screenings, will develop a practical and conceptual approach to the medium. Video, although used as an artists' material since the late 1950's, has undergone many transformations both due to technical innovation and shifting cultural and artistic landscapes. Video art today is in such wide use by artists in general that it can seem barely noteworthy beyond a materials footnote. However, Video Art, born during a time of the intersection of television culture, conceptual art, and performance art, retains traces of all of these today. This seminar will provide a useful introduction to Video Art's history, methods, and expressive capacities. Technically, we will look at digital editing and compositing techniques as well as mining the characteristics of the many camera technologies available today.

¡Hola! Welcome to SPN 117 Advanced Spanish Composition, also listed as “Writing intensive”. In this page you will find everything related to our class: syllabus, readings, assignments, bios (about us, as writers!), other resources, and calendar.

We will explore, learn and practice several modes of writing with the aim of producing texts of autobiography in Spanish. Why autobiography? Because we all have a story to tell and especially you: Why are you taking this advanced writing class in Spanish? Why do you speak Spanish? That is a story that deserves to be told! This class is designed to help students sharpen their tools in Spanish with personal expression. How is your family history? How was the journey that brought you here?

Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

African American History to Emancipation explores the history, memory, and representation of enslavement and abolition in the United States. The key questions we are posing are: how do we recover the unrecoverable and how do we remember the “unrememberable?” We will consider the history of enslavement in the Atlantic World, its legacies in the United States, the gaps in our knowledge, the global trauma of Atlantic World Slavery, and contemporary and contemporaneous representations. Key themes include: the formation of the Atlantic World, enslavement, the transatlantic slave trade, slavery in the United States, the formation of African American cultures, the emergence of race and racism, resistance and rebellion, abolition, emancipation and the meaning of freedom.
