For this short on-site course students review the field of ArtScience, attend four class sessions, and attend the Imagine Science Film Festival (Oct 12-19) for a total of 15 contact hours. The festival is hosted by Imagine Science Films, a partner of Eugene Lang College, whose mission is to promote the intersection of the arts and sciences through provocative documentary, fiction, animation, feature and short films, and associated panel discussion and competitions. In the past, salons of this nature were commonplace, but over the last 100 years, disciplinary silos promoted their separation. Today, these fields are exploring overlapping themes and methods, breaking boundaries, and creating new "contact zones." To share this renewed interest in the intersection of the arts and sciences, educators, researchers, and artists are communicating how breakthroughs in biochemistry, particle physics, climate change, and genetic research are radically changing our view of the world. Students engage with the creation of various forms of cultural output for wider dissemination using formats such as Facebook Live Interviews, Twitter, Blogs, Response Papers, and articles for the New School Press. This course counts towards the Subject Requirement for the Journalism + Design Major. This course also counts as an elective for the Screen Studies track of the Culture and Media major and is a Lang Civic Liberal Arts course.
