CRWR 382: Bodies of Knowledge (3 credits)
This course invites writers, artists, and performers to investigate through literary arts the influence(s) of their own bodies on their artwork, and the compositional opportunities these influences provide. Bodies of Knowledge considers conceptions of body and of our bodies in comparison to bodies of work,bodies of knowledge,bodies of land,and the work of art as a body. Course work will include intimate participant led workshops, and democratic and experimental seminars exploring the notion of “body” from numerous perspectives including through indigenous pedagogies, ecocriticism, pragmatist aesthetics, and feminist, queer, and critical disability theory. Participants in this course will have the opportunity to develop and expand existing bodies of work as well as create new work. Presentations by artists and writers from the Summer Indigenous Residency Program are a major component of this course.
