Low culture, high culture. High art, low art. Distinction? Interplay? Market? Politics? In this creative practice literary seminar, we’ll be examining and exploring Lo-Fi text/media, text/sound, text/performance, text/image iterations of creative writing. Our academic launchpads will include cave art, glyphs, radical printmaking, Fluxus, Pop, NYC’s East Village, Graffiti, Punk, and Internet Culture. A span of guests and readings will keep diversity, inclusion, and artistic daring at the forefront of our discussion. In our (mostly weekly) creative assignments (fiction and non-fiction), we’ll take on, for example, Xeroxing, puppets, paper arts, poem objects, performance directives, memoir videos, receipt diaries, Fisher Price, archival and advertising source materials.

Permission required for this course. Please contact your advisor. This course is available for students completeing the graduate minor in Transmedia & Digital Storytelling.
