CSRE 226X: Curating Experience: Representation in and beyond Museums (AMSTUD 226X, EDUC 226X)

In an age when some 50% of museum visitors only "visit" museums online and when digital technologies have broken open archival access, anyone can be a curator, a critic, an historian, an archivist. In this context, how do museums create experiences that teach visitors about who they are and about the world around them? What are the politics of representation that shape learning in these environments? Using an experimental instructional approach, students will reconsider and redefine what it means to curate experience.

CSRE 290: Ferguson in a Global Frame: Human Rights and the Arts (AFRICAAM 290, COMPLIT 290)

This course introduces students to fundamental concepts of international human rights and uses these concepts to frame problems of inequality, marginality, exclusion and injustice that are chronic across the globe¿including the United States. Focusing on Ferguson as a point of inflection, this course will consider police repression of political protest in a comparative context. The course will also use the lens of fundamental human rights to explore a state¿s failure to investigate and prosecute, and its failure to protect its citizens from violations committed by agents or from non-state agents. In each thematic unit, we will examine the United States in a comparative lens, and will consider how we understand, frame, mourn and contest the violations of rights in literature, the visual arts, and in social and political action. We will continuously examine the role of the arts in disseminating, shaping and deepening our understanding of multiple dimensions of human rights violations. At the same time, we will consider how these cultural products reflect on, illuminate, contest or problematize advocacy texts and sources of international law. We will examine texts from the United States, Brazil, South Africa, among other countries, as well as documents from international and regional human rights bodies.

CSRE 36: REPRESENT! Covering Race, Culture, and Identity In The Arts through Writing, Media, and Transmedia. (AFRICAAM 36)

Probably since the first audience formed for the first chalk scrawls in a cave, there have been storytellers to narrate that caveperson's art and life, and critics to troll that caveperson's choice and usage of color. And so it goes. This course is an exploration into how to cover race, culture, and identity in the arts in journalism, such as print, web, video, radio, and podcasting. It is also an arts journalism practicum. During the quarter, we will be working toward creating work that is publishable in various venues and outlets. In this course, we will be discussing exemplary arts writers and their works and interrogating critical questions around race, identity, representation, and ethics. Experienced journalists, editors, and experts from different platforms and backgrounds will also be imparting important skills and training that will help you to navigate today's working media and transmedia environments. Those who enroll in the class will be expected to produce quality content (e.g. articles, blog posts, video reports, podcasts) for media outlets. Some travel outside of class may be required for additional reporting and training. This seminar class will be By Instructor Approval Only. Please submit an application by February 22 at 11:59pm. Starred items are required. The app is available at: http://bit.ly/RepresentClass36 Those selected for this class will be informed by March 2nd so that they may enroll in the course. Please do not apply for the course if you are unsure about completing it. If you have any questions, you may email the instructor at: jeffc410@stanford.edu.
