Special Evidence-Focused Seminar. For more information: http://evidence.emory.edu/in-the-news/evidence-focused-courses.html

Philosophy, the arts, and criticism come together in this course that traces the history of artistic thinking from the early Greeks, to the naughty Europeans, to our current artistic climate. Students will create, perform, produce, examine, and begin to define their own aesthetics by taking in as much art and culture as one can in a semester! Guest lectures, abstract thinking, and a journey into unfamiliar arts-driven territory will define the class. Students will have the opportunity to gain some hands-on experience with different artistic genres, including music, theater, visual arts, and dance. Please note that this is not a dance technique class.
