The Arts Senior Seminar: Creative Projects

Eugene Lang College Lib Arts: The Arts

Liberal Arts

Undergraduate Course

Majors Only

Arts Sr. Seminar: Creative

Spring 2021

Taught By: Joseph Diebes

Section: AX

CRN: 7431

Credits: 4

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 seminar you will develop a substantial creative project in any medium in addition to a 10-page artist essay that situates your practice both historically and within a contemporary social context. The key word of our seminar is process. What we want to do is find a regular creative practice, and so we will begin immediately on our final project, always aware that choices and commitments are necessary to continue development, but are provisional and subject to evolution and even total transformation. The majority of the class time will be spent directly discussing each others’ work, though we will also read and discuss texts written by artists. Every class meeting will involve workshops, updates on all projects, presentations, and most importantly, constructive feedback. Permission required. Enrollment limited to 12 students.
