Arts senior seminars bridge the collective experience of studying the arts at Lang with students’ individual paths of study. The seminars foreground the process of formulating and realizing creative and intellectual projects within a supportive peer context. Students apply their research and creative skills, their ability to clearly and persuasively communicate ideas and approaches, and their capacity to meaningfully critique the work of their peers. Each student completes either a research-based creative project with a written component of 10 pages, or a traditional research paper of 30 pages. Students are evaluated both on their research and creative work and on the quality of their participation in collaborative workshops, individual conferences, and class presentations. In this senior seminar students will have an opportunity to deepen their studies through the crafting of a 30-page research paper on a topic of their choosing. Although writing is often considered to be a solitary endeavor, the seminar foregrounds the process of developing a rigorous intellectual project within a supportive peer context. During the first third of the semester, students will read a range of critical texts in order to explore some of the challenges and pleasures that come with archival research, and they will work to clarify their own research interests and priorities. Once students have developed their individual project proposals, the class will function as a lively and generous workshop involving presentations, regular project updates, and constructive feedback. Permission required.
