ANTH 2140: Anthropology of Food
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

As organisms, humans need to eat to live. As cultural beings, eating and food provide some of the most basic ways in which humans define themselves. One group’s delicacies are another’s taboos, and what defines comfort foods and favorite dishes shifts drastically across cultures and individuals. Eating and food are simultaneously profoundly personal, deeply cultural, inherently economic, and increasingly political. This course is organized around the production, circulation, and consumption of food, and the political and economic effects of those processes. Students will learn to use food as an analytical entry point for thinking about relationships among humans and with non-human beings.

ARTD 3138/7138: Journey to Wakanda: African Art and Popular Culture
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

This seminar aims to channel the excitement and interest generated by the film Black Panther into a course that utilizes its themes, design elements, and costumes as a means to explore the art and culture of the African continent. This course will provide students with the tools to assess how African cultures are referenced and reimagined in the film, ultimately allowing them to assess if these allusions are informed and appropriate and how they shape our understanding of the film. The course begins by providing students with several theoretical frameworks for understanding the film and its use of African cultures, followed by an exploration of ancient and historical African empires that served as the inspiration for the mythological empire of Wakanda. The majority of the class focuses on specific characters, examining the actual culture practices and forms of dress that influenced their characterization, providing students with a more nuanced and informed understanding of African cultural practices. Students will examine a diverse range of visual art forms throughout the African continent, with an emphasis on textiles, dress and adornment. Most importantly, this course will encourage students to interrogate and question how African cultures are frequently referenced in American popular culture.

An Environment and Cultural Heritage Workbook for Students and Teachers
Read the Fine Print
Some Rights Reserved
Rating

The word "heritage" is one that means many things to many people. It often brings to mind things like food, language, clothing, or other traditions that are passed on from generation to generation. But it also includes places, buildings, art, values, and ways of making a living in particular environments. In Maya communities, as is the case elsewhere around the world, cultural practices and the environment are tightly connected, with one shaping the other.With this workbook we take a broad view of heritage, one that links cultural and environmental histories, landscapes, and practices together. A term that UNESCO and others often use is "cultural landscapes" to refer to a long and intimate relationship between peoples and their...environment (http://whc.unesco.org/en/culturallandscape/)." This also reflects the ways many of the people who shared this information for the workbook view their own heritage.

How does the editing of images and sound reveal the complexity of an experience? Through editing we will learn to manipulate time, space, sound and emotions to create a subjective experience we can share with the viewers. In this course you will work to develop skills in the craft of editing. This is a hands-on course, emphasizing non-linear editing using Premiere Pro CC. In addition to the technical aspects of editing, we will study the art and theory of the craft through screenings of a variety of works. We will explore various conventions and expressions in narrative, documentary and experimental forms. Over the course of the semester, you will begin to define your role as an editor, understand editing as a potential profession, and discover how it enriches your overall process as a storyteller.

Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Bringing together MA and MFA students from Brooklyn College and CUNY in PIMA, Screen Studies, Film, Art History, Queer and Feminist Studies, and related disciplines, this team-taught course engages closely with twelve AIDS activist videotapes from the first decade of the crisis to raise and respond to questions about videotape, analogue records, the archive, research, performance, and AIDS. The Spring 2020 class will sit and be built out here, in this growing Scalar "book," taking and growing the form of a student-generated, online, openly-available resource for more teaching, learning, and activism about the 12 tapes under consideration. In Spring 2019, the course was built in and using Omeka, and some of what remains is available there. An article about the first iteration of the experimental class by Professors Juhasz and McCoy is available on this site here (in Readings). In Spring 2020, students will build from the research, performance, art, and activism of the previous cohort, whose work focused on three current and past concerns raised by the selected tapes: prostitutes’ and sex workers rights and AIDS; art, voice, education, authenticity, and children in relation to AIDS and queerness; and community-based activism for and about communities of color, with a particular interest in the Brooklyn-based activist group, VOCAL, and their commitments to housing and safe consumption spaces for people affected by AIDS (see Student Projects).

VHS Activism Archive
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

All scholars, activists, researchers, and artists of a certain age and inclination are burdened with a soon-to-be-obsolete but always-beloved, carefully tended but perhaps recently quieted, collection which most likely sits on an office shelf gaining dust: their VHS Archive. Not a personal collection, but a professional one of continuing or even growing value if not usability, this archive has been lovingly built and used, probably over decades, for teaching and research and in support of the movements and issues that have mattered most to the collector. The Brooklyn College graduate course in Film and Art, VHS Archives, models how to store, transfer, share, research, teach and make art from, and reactivate one such archive: 12 videotapes focusing on AIDS, gender, sexuality and bodies selected from Dr. Alexandra Juhasz’s 300+ scholarly collection of VHS tapes recently gifted to the Brooklyn College Library where they will be housed, and digitized, for further use for teaching and research.

Over a semester, the class will take the form of a student-generated, online, openly-available resource for teaching, learning, and activism about 12 tapes under consideration. In Juhasz's recent book, AIDS Crisis Revisitation: conversations on HIV, Media, and Memory, co-written with AIDS activist Theodore Kerr, we contemplate the liabilities of the up-to-now patrimonial stewardship of the AIDS media archive, and posit activist interventions to find, share, and learn from holdings more complex than the recently revisited experiences and legacies of gay white men. This class activates one portion of just such archive, ready to be enjoyed, used, and mined by women, people of color, students, scholars, activists, and others curious to attend to the histories and current realities of HIV—and VHS–in America.
