Courses in Institute for the Humanities (Division 394)

101. First Year Seminar in Interdisciplinary Studies. (3). (HU).
Section 001 The Movement Workshop: Embodying the Imaginary through Movement Imagery.
The class will meet in one session each week. Each class is divided into two parts. The first part, a studio class in the basics of movement facilitation, will introduce students to various modern-day approaches to dance movement. The second will explore ways of communicating various "image orientations" using the moving body as the medium of expression. What images haunt us? empower us? define our individual academic or artistic disciplines? our own sense of self? How do we house imagery in an expressive form? in our bodies as well as in our minds? How is the visual or verbal linked to the sensory and sensual? How is experience (or human intelligence or ability to learn) determined or enhanced by the body's receptivity (or lack thereof) to respond, identify with, or interact with images from both outside the body and from within? There are no prerequisites except the willingness to participate actively in the exploration of all kinds of movement, dance-oriented or other. (Sparling)
