200: Graduate seminar - Professor Victoria Vesna
Tuesdays, 12 - 2 pm, Broad Arts Center, Room 5261
Description This graduate seminar is designed for incoming graduate students to get acquainted with the creative research of all senate faculty in the department. The goal of this seminar is to immediately introduce students to the wide spectrum of work that the D|MA faculty are engaged in so that they can make an informed choice when deciding on their MFA committee. In 2004, the faculty gave retrospective lectures on their work and last year they discussed their works in progress. Both of these lectures were open to the public, streamed live and are now accessible on the DMA streaming video archive. 2006 is an unusual year because the department moved to a newly renovated Broad Art center over the summer and the faculty has their work on exhibition for the first time in its history. Since the lecture facilities were not quite ready and there are already streams of videos with the past lectures, this class will be closed to the public and take on a more intimate form of “unplugged” sessions where faculty can give a bit of insight about their process and answer any questions that the students have.

Students are highly encouraged to research every faculty member’s work and view their past lectures on the D|MA streaming video archive. The only requirement, other than attendance and participation, is to do further research, view video streams of one faculty member and develop one document that reviews the work and lists a series of questions. This document is due on December 12.
