New Honors Seminar: Humanities/East Asian Studies H84
Professor of East Asian Studies Hu Ying is teaching a special honors seminar this fall 2019 on “Traveling East/West.” We encourage you to read the description below and sign up for Human/EAS H84. This seminar counts for one course of GE Category IV and may substitute for one quarter of Social Science Core.
Traveling East/West presents a wide range of travel writings by Chinese, Indian, and Euro-American authors in which they contemplate the complexities of cross-cultural encounters and how knowledge about others and knowledge of ourselves are closely intertwined. It invites students to consider how travel literature affects and shapes its readers and their perception of the world. This course is available to all disciplines with no prerequisites.
New Honors Seminar: Arts H81
Professor of Dance Alan Terricciano is teaching a special honors seminar this fall 2019 on “Improvisation and Modes of Research and Creative Expression.” We encourage you to read the description below and sign up for Arts H81. This seminar counts for one course of GE Category IV and may substitute for one quarter of Social Science Core.
The course frames improvisation as a complex of powerful, formal research tools applicable to many fields. It addresses improvisatory practices within the arts and extrapolates a set of tools embedded in artistic improvisation – temporal awareness and engagement in time; real-time design; pattern recognition and pattern repetition; and the ability to identify, illuminate and explore connections between disparate phenomena. Through readings, guest lectures by UCI faculty and visiting artists (when possible), in-class student-centered learning, and project design, this course sets out to demonstrate how these tools apply across the disciplines, from creative writing to the analysis of large-scale data sets to the application of the scientific method. This course is available to all disciplines with no prerequisites.
