Homework Review

We’ll spend the first half of the class reviewing and discussing your precedent research. There are a lot of posts to explore and we’d like everyone to have a chance, so we’ll keep the pace moving along. When your post comes up, please try to keep your explanation concise but give each example enough time that we can digest the work. As others talk, please always be thinking of the question you might ask.


Five-minute mid-class rest break.


We will randomly assign two or three per breakout room for a quick five-minute integrative discussion. Please discuss the work we’ve just reviewed and come up with a novel project idea inspired by the examples. No constraints at this stage: these could be extravagant and imaginative, but please include some elements of costume and air. Also discuss, what worked, what didn’t work, and what you think has potential. Afterward, we’ll all meet again for a quick round of explaining your project idea.

Assignment Four

The fourth assignment is due before class on Tuesday, 2/1.


Here are a few examples from students in a previous section of this course:
