VISST 3210 Ancient/Modern Corpo-Realities
This course is only offered in the Summer Session.
Held in Rome, this course examines that modern city as it interfaces with its past, by analyzing corporeal/spatial epistemologies through the analyses of films that used Rome as a location, visiting those location sites that extend from the historic center to as far as the suburb LEUR. Topics include examination of the ways in which class relates to social and public space and urban space as performance. Additional course work in film production, performance, and writing allows students to re-inscribe their spatial/corporeal experiences into an alternative exhibition space of the city street or the written page. In addition, each student will be required to produce formal textual documentation and full textual analyses of this process and final performance, installation, or text-based product.
