Led by Annie Seaton
Together with Annie Seaton, the Director of Bard’s Difference and Media Project and a conceptual artist with the Yam Collective, a selected group of students will participate in a three part seminar/event. Limited to three Language and Thinking sections.
Students will read Chapter 1 of Reamer Kline’s Education for the Common Good: A History of Bard College the First 100 Years, as well as extracts from Schuler’s “Landscape as a Means of Culture,” Craig Wilder’s Ebony and Ivy, and The Anti-Rent Era in New York Law and Politics, 1839-1865 by Charles McCurdy before the seminar. The second part of the event will consist of classroom discussion and analysis. The next part of the seminar-event will take place at Blithewood and Wilderstein, time and weather permitting.
