2 credits “Clarity, clarity, surely clarity is the most beautiful thing in the world,” wrote the poet George Oppen. In this class we will explore twin demands of grammatical correctness and sentence clarity as we consider the choices available to writers seeking to render complex ideas with razor-sharp precision. Readings, as well as topics for short writing assignments, will be drawn from the field of human rights, including such issues as prison abuse in Iraq, genocide in Rwanda and Darfur, and war crimes in Central America and the Balkans.

2 credits Klezmer, the traditional celebration music of Eastern European Jewish culture, has been gaining tremendous popularity over the past 15 years as a vital genre that spans both the world music and new music improvisation scenes. In its most basic form, Klezmer is perhaps one of the most accessible jumping off points for someone who has never been exposed to a non -western music or to improvisation. The goal of the course is to create a performing Klezmer ensemble plus give students an introduction to improvisation through study and exercises with the Klezmer modes. The first semester will stress transcription of historical Klezmer recordings, learning tunes and basic familiarity with the style. The second semester will be geared more to ensemble performance and individual performance projects. The ensemble will be lead by Bard Conservatory faculty member David Krakauer,who is one of the leading figures in contemporary Klezmer music today. The course is open to advanced musicians by audition. Auditors welcome.
Note! MUS WKSP1 Workshop: Jazz Composition I carries 4 credits.

Cross-listed: Asian Studies
This course is designed to explore the “three jewels” of Buddhism: the Buddha, the Dharma (the teaching), and the Sangha (the Buddhist community). We will move imaginatively through different historical periods, cultures, and what might be called “Buddhisms” in this introductory survey of Buddhist teachings and practices. Our goals are threefold: first, we must consider what tools are potentially helpful in the comparative study of religion. We will revisit and reevaluate this objective throughout the course. Second, and most importantly, we will explore the diversity of thought and practice within the religious tradition monolithically referred to as “Buddhism,” by acquainting ourselves with the texts and participants of various communities (or “schools”) of Buddhists including Theravada, Tibetan, Pure Land and Zen. Finally, the “three jewels” framework will help us to organize our findings and to make sense of apparent continuities and differences among the traditions.
Religion program category: Historical
As religious phenomena not equally important in all spiritual traditions, forms of pilgrimage are some of Religion program category: Historical most widely present kinds of activity and expression in the religious life. This course will deeply consider pilgrimage as one unifying theme in the exploration of human religious identity. As a religious arena in which multiple cultural patterns converge and shape each other, pilgrimage in its various forms has also played a very significant historical role in shaping trade and commerce, geographic consciousness, centers of political power, and artistic forms. This course will examine what religionists and anthropologists have called “ritual pilgrimages,” such as the Catholic Santiago de Compostela, identity building tours to Poland and Israel for Jewish youth such as the March of the Living and Birthright Israel, the Islamic Hajj to Mecca, the Hindu Ban-yatra through Braj, and pilgrimages to sites from the Buddha Gautama's lifestory.
