Student-Driven Course Competition
To all first-years, sophomores, and juniors:
Have you ever dreamed about being able to take a course, or study a subject, that is not currently offered at Bard? The Experimental Humanities concentration is taking applications for new EH courses based on student ideas, to be designed in collaboration with faculty. One course idea will be chosen to run in spring 2017. The winning course will receive up to $2000 for speakers and other course-related expenses, as well as work-study funds for the student(s) involved in designing the course.
Proposed courses should align with the aims of the Experimental Humanities concentration, which is committed to the study of what it means to be human and to the role of experimentation in research, learning, and the arts. EH seeks to provide students with the historical context, theoretical background, and analytical and technical skills to engage productively with new forms of humanistic inquiry as they arise. The concentration emphasizes the reconsideration of “old” media in light of today’s technologies, and encourages hands-on “practice” and “making” projects alongside academic writing. More information on Experimental Humanities can be found at our website, http://eh.bard.edu.
We welcome course proposals that draw on, expand, or productively combine existing areas of study at Bard. Students may apply to design this course individually or in groups of up to four.
To apply, complete the application form attached to the email sent the class and submit it to Miriam Felton-Dansky (firstname.lastname@example.org) by March 28, 2016.
