AHIS 333 S001: Interdisciplinary Forums
Priority for this course is given to Year 3 students in ANIM, CRCP, ILUS, IMED, ISMA, PHOT and VIAR.
This course takes advantage of the knowledge and experience articulated in the various public presentations at Emily Carr in order to help students engage more directly with current practices in art and design. The course will contextualize weekly lectures, exhibitions, screenings, or other public events in an integrated examination of issues central to contemporary art practice. The course is structured through a program of public lectures, influential readings, team-taught lectures and seminars, discussions, written assignments and presentations.
Topic: Archives of Emotion
The word "emotion" dates to 1579, when it was adapted from the French word émouvoir, which means "to stir up." This is the point of departure for the exploration that forms the focus of this course. More than simply an explosion of feeling or the root of tears, Archives of Emotion will investigate emotions as starting points for a variety of creative, political and social actions. Desire, melancholy, outrage and shame: these states and others will serve as the basis for an investigation into the cultural relevance of emotional feeling, and the ways in which they can be approached as the impetus for thought or action - on the part of audience and/or of the artist.
