|SOS||SO–SRSophomore - Senior||16||16||Day||S 15Spring||Poetics involves language as creative functions (writing, poetry, fiction), language as performance, language as image and language as a tool of thought (philosophy, criticism). Our work will be to calibrate these various activities, which is to say find the relationships between poetic and critical thought.Students are invited to join a learning community of culture workers interested in language as a medium of artistic production. This SOS is designed for students who share similar skills and common interests in doing advanced work that may have grown out of previous academic projects and/or programs. Students will work with faculty throughout the quarter; we will design small study groups, collaborative projects and critique groups that will allow students to support one another's work.||Leonard Schwartz||Sophomore SO Junior JR Senior SR||Spring||Spring|
