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, screens media, researches 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 Ph.D., it must be taken for three terms in a row, one unit in each of the first two terms, and two in the third term. Students taking the course for two units would complete a capstone project
for the course.
