There will be small projects, writing assignments, quizzes and tests throughout, designed to acclimate students to these various modes.

However, it is strongly encouraged that students have an interest in learning about contemporary art, experimental poetics, and various new genres that may challenge your preconceptions of what constitutes “art.” Students should also be prepared to work with computers, and have some basic familiarity with them.
