Professor: Benjamin Boretz

CRN: 12467

Time: Wed 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm Brook House

A laboratory in basic production and reproduction techniques and skills, introducing students to fundamentals in the use of resources for sampling, processing, generating, and recording available at the Integrated Arts Center in Brook House. Practice in recording events, placing microphones, reinforcing sound, and mastering and burning audio CDs will be facilitated. Students who qualify will be able to produce their own work in these studios and act as supervisors for the work of others. Most of the equipment currently available is for audio production and reproduction, but rudimentary facilities for primitive video production and fairly good video reproduction are also available. Samples from the recorded and theoretical literature will be heard/viewed regularly. Enrollment is limited, with priority given to students who have moderated in Integrated Arts or are planning to do so. See Mr. Boretz before registration to discuss enrollment.


INTARTS C Integrated Arts Aesthetics Seminar-Film and Poetry/Language and Image

Professor: John Pruitt

CRN: 12468

Time: Tu 9:30 am - 12:30 pm Preston Film Centre
Screening: Mon 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm Preston Film Centre

The course will closely examine a mode of filmmaking which bears a fruitful connection to both the content and formal structures of lyric poetry. A secondary focus will be theoretical and expressive issues raised by the cinema's ability in certain key works to attempt a convergence of language and image into a dynamic, aesthetic whole. Films by Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp, Alexander Dovzhenko, Maya Deren, Stan Brakhage, Robert Breer, Michael Snow, and Hollis Frampton, among others. Pertinent theoretical texts by many of the same filmmakers as well as carefully selected poems by a number of 19th and 20th century poets, including P.B. Shelley, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Wallace Stevens, H.D. et al. The Prelude by William Wordsworth and Paterson by William Carlos Williams will be crucial reading. There is one required long paper and a short video/film project. While open to non-majors, the course has been especially geared to work as a meeting ground for filmmakers, poets, and practitioners of integrated arts. Juniors and Seniors will be given first priority in enrollment.

A course in thinking about performance and a workshop experimenting with it within a variety of art practices: drama, dance, theory, poetics, music, and photography or video. We will explore the recent tendency to discuss meaning as produced in performance rather than embodied in texts performed. Feminist and queer perspectives will be especially important to the work of the course. Guest faculty from a variety of arts will frequently help lead classes. We will read theoretical work about performance, about its social and political values (performing sexual identities, or racial ones), and about particular performers (Cindy Sherman, Robert Mapplethorpe, Bill T Jones). Theorists include Peggy Phelan, Judith Butler, and Derrida, among others.
