Student-Originated Studies: The Archival Impulse - Advanced Studies in Humanities, Social Sciences, and Library Research

Spring 2017 quarter

Taught by

queer studies, philosophy, poetics
  • UG

This upper-division program combines some of the usual features of a one-quarter program (readings, lecture, seminar) with focused work on a student research project. Some readings, lecture, and seminar discussions will be shared with the program Archives of the Present . The student research project should be emergent from a previous program (for example, a final essay you’d like to broaden with further reading or research) or in-depth self-study. Students will be supported in all phases of revising and expanding the project with extensive library research as they seek to answer the question "what is the archive of my project?" and delve deep into that archive. The Archival Impulse is an ideal space for students wanting to go on to graduate work or just deepen their understanding in areas such as philosophy, queer and gender studies, media theory, literature, creative writing, translation, library science, information science, political economy, and related areas.
