When William Blake wrote in 1799, “As the Eye is formed such are its Powers,” he noted what we see is shaped by who we are and what we believe. Almost 200 years later, Alice Fulton wrote “let my glance be passional / toward the universe and you,” calling for vision as an active approach to the world, a form of attention that clarifies truths and embraces hidden possibilities. In this course we will use writing to explore our visions of ourselves and each other, of our natures and cultures. We will investigate art and artifacts — some we know well, and some we will discover on field trips to museums and other spots of interest — to question how they both embody and challenge our ways of seeing. Writing is often (as John Berger has pointed out) “an attempt to explain how, either metaphorically or literally, ‘you see things.’” Our course will engage with all aspects of the writing process, from brainstorming and research to collaboration and revision — to make our glances more passional, to see our subjects more sharply and deeply, and to communicate our ways of seeing most effectively to audiences.
