Poetics Seminar: Contemporary Trends

In this course, students focus on the current trends, patterns, and concerns of writing practices. We investigate and consider a variety of artistic practices that both inform and are informed by contemporary texts, which may include the cross-pollination of writing with other cultural and social practices, conceptualism, or the blurring of low and high art. In addition to reading contemporary texts, students trace the history of these trends to observe their dynamic evolution.
