Approaching Aftermath

Subject Name: 
Humanities Arts Cultural Stu
Course Number: 
Hampshire College
In this workshop, students will explore the idea and implications of aftermath. Utilizing aftermath as a framework, students will consider what remains-how the past persists in the present, how the future is shadowed, and the ways in which no framework is stable. This intensive theory/practice workshop in Installation and Creative Writing is designed for Division II students interested in developing practices that engage questions of site, space, time, experience and the senses within specific historical contexts. Students will develop their skills in reading, writing, looking and translating between abstract concepts and concrete forms of artistic expression. Weekly exercises will hone critical skills and support students in their self-directed research project/presentation. This course will encourage students to broaden their perspective of artistic process and practice as we challenge traditional modes of production and presentation collectively. This will be a challenging course for serious students in creative writing, media, visual, and performing arts.
Independent Work Lab fee: $35. Field trip fee: approximately $20. Prerequisites: Prior workshop experience and one intro media production course or equivalent, e.g. any introductory course in digital, visual, media, or performing arts and/or creative writing; 1 critical or cultural studies course; recommended: one 200-level course in either the humanities or social sciences.
