Framing Your Work: Projects in History, Art and the Humanities
We are aware of missing faculty photos in the directory and catalog and will be updating them shortly. Thank you for your patience.
Spring 2018 quarter
Students should have a strong interdisciplinary background in the humanities and the arts.
This program is designed for students who already have strong interdisciplinary background in the humanities and the arts, and who are ready to complete extensive individual projects in history, the visual arts or the humanities with critical support from a peer-group learning community. Students who enroll in the program should already have well-developed ideas for their proposed individual artistic, academic or creative non-fiction projects. They will meet with faculty during the first week of the quarter to refine their project proposals and solidify their book lists and research activities; then students will spend weeks 2 through 5 of the quarter working full-time on their individual projects. Classes will not be scheduled during that period but there is a dedicated shared studio space available to all students needing work space. The last five weeks of the quarter (weeks 6 through 10) students will return to the classroom to revise, critique and polish their work alongside students from the year-long Cityscapes program. During these last five weeks of the quarter, students will also participate in seminars, workshops and lectures focusing on issues in contemporary urban studies, artistic practice, and the history and literature of the city.
