The Art of Culture Commentary

Course Details

This course is a humble attempt to make sense of this audacious phrase, “cultural commentary,” to understand and rigorously assess our reactions to cultural productions. We will read and appreciate work that energetically engages with culture. And, if we are lucky, we will produce work that inspires the same feelings. Anyone who has found themselves excited, disappointed, confused or angered by a painting, performance, sports game, book, film or television show is welcome.
