DANC 004. Arts in Action

(Cross-listed as MUSI 006 )

What is art and what constitutes action? The course will explore these questions in two ways: First, we will look at the interconnections between culture, art, and community through rigorous intellectual inquiry by orienting students to some key ideas through selected readings. Second, we will engage in situated experiential learning with local and international arts communities. Our areas of foci include local (Philadelphia) and international (South Asia). Both approaches (intellectual and experiential) will explore themes on art and civic engagement.  Class requirements include readings, video viewings, class discussions, attending symposiums, and exhibitions, and doing a final project based on the readings/discussions and field experiences.

This course is open to all students. This course fulfills a prerequisite requirement for dance majors and minors.
