Curation – W21


Winter - 2021


Examines issues related to curation, including the construction of canons, cultural value, and economies of prestige. Students work with the CWC director in curating programs for the Pollock Theater and related research events. Class discusses readings, screen media, research potential guests, writes questions for Q&A sessions with invited guests, and writes program notes for the CWC’s website and Pollock programs. Students register for one unit per quarter. If taken for elective credit toward the Film and Media Studies PhD, it must be taken for two terms in a row, two units in each of the two terms.
