Basic Program CANCELED: Steinbeck: Tortilla Flat, The Log from...
03/27/2017 to 06/12/2017

BASC 50063 | CANCELED: Steinbeck: Tortilla Flat, The Log from the Sea of Cortez and The Long Valley

John Steinbeck’s incarnating the life of the Salinas Valley, the particularities around Monterey, California and the Pacific thrillingly draws from geologic pre-history, the external and inner movements of people, the uses and abuses of those lands and waters, those people, their works, their Beings and Becomings. Tortilla Flat’s raucous, picaresque vignettes paint an almost religious saga of post-war paisanos fighting, drinking, loving, dying, surviving - chapter by piquant chapter. Famously, The Log crystallizes narrative from Steinbeck’s healing and passional marine study voyage with beloved biologist-friend Ed Ricketts, model for Doc of Cannery Row. The Long Valley’s short stories are Steinbeck’s garland, litany, hymn to his Salinas.

Basic Program Ovid Metamorphoses
03/27/2017 to 06/12/2017

BASC 50013 | Ovid Metamorphoses

Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso, 43 BC to AD 17 or 18) began his epic poem on the theme of changes about AD 2, and finished it in exile. The poem has pleased and informed Western readers and poets since its first appearance. Ovid’s retelling and modification of the myths of ancient Greece and Rome was read through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance as a collection of stories, and, from the 16th Century, began to be appreciated as a source of innovative poetic principles. It has been said that “The Metamorphoses is like no poem written before it, although virtually everything in it can be found elsewhere.” (This is the third quarter of a three-quarter sequence).

Basic Program Revisiting Downton Abbey – Seasons 5 and 6
03/27/2017 to 06/12/2017

BASC 70013 | Revisiting Downton Abbey – Seasons 5 and 6

Capturing the imagination of an era is not accidental. Downton Abbey is one of the most popular television series beloved by viewers who intuit connections between the late Edwardian society and our own. The late Edwardian period was a time of unprecedented social and cultural changes in music, literature, art, architecture, fashion, and inventiveness. The manifestations of innovation are wonderfully captured against a world that is resisting change that affects all levels of this society. The important question of how people reinvent themselves is at the heart of our exploration of why this series is so popular both in America and so many other countries. This three quarter sequence will examine both Fellowes’s scripts as well as a number of other references which the author of this work used from his own extensive understanding of this period. This is the third quarter of a yearlong course.

Open Enrollment Course CANCELED: Postmodern Architecture
03/27/2017 to 05/15/2017

HUAS 72001 | CANCELED: Postmodern Architecture

Postmodernism marks perhaps the first time that a major artistic and cultural movement started in architecture and spread outward, rather than the architectural direction being driven by changes in other media. Postmodernism is fundamentally a hybrid. Therefore we will look at its primary antecedents, both Modern and traditional or Neoclassical forms, and trace its evolution from minor heresies in late Modernism to the full-blown “pastel pastiches” for which it became known.

Open Enrollment Course Introduction to Classical Greek, Part 3
03/27/2017 to 06/5/2017

HUAS 48003 | Introduction to Classical Greek, Part 3

In the spring quarter, students complete the first book of the Iliad, beginning with the divine-like wrath of the hero Achilles and ending with the all-too-human laughter of the gods. In summer, after a short introduction to the differences between the Homeric and Attic dialects, students read a brief, but under-appreciated dialogue by Plato, the Hippias Minor, which begins by considering the question of who is the better epic hero – Achilles or Odysseus, and ends strangely with Socrates arguing that it is better to do wrong on purpose than in ignorance.

Open Enrollment Course Dramatic Writing: Shadows & Light
03/27/2017 to 05/22/2017

WRIT 22803 | Dramatic Writing: Shadows & Light

So much of what moves and compels us in story can be understood in terms of shadows and light. The protagonist fights against the dark forces of psychology and environment to reach the light of the hero they were meant to be, moving from ignorance to knowledge, from chaos to order – or not. In this class, we’ll examine the forces of darkness in your character’s world and map pathways for them to find their way to the light. We'll also address how to use recurring motifs in your story’s physical and relationship landscapes to provide key signposts on your character’s journey and deepen audience experience of theme.
