Visual Studies 185X: Songs & Places: México

Visual Studies 185X: Songs & Places: México
SP 2016 / 4 units / CCN 04253

A special course in the Visual Studies Program involving music, cultural history and the visual arts. Of particular interest to students with Spanish language background. Many of you have grown up with this music--but not so many know where it comes from or how it's evolved--the performers, the traditions, the way the songs dovetail with the culture in general. These are beautiful and engaging questions. That's why the course--which also offers a kind of forum or meeting space (hogar cultural) for students with roots in México and Latin America as a whole. And a chance to challenge yourself through the artwork you make in response.

Interested students should read the extended course description, CED/Visual studies Courses/SP2016 and contact Anthony Dubovsky directly: chambersstreet@hotmail.com.

Career Opportunities for Recent Graduates

We’re running campaigns this coming year to make a difference on some of the top issues facing our generation.

We're pushing big companies to go solar as the next big step toward 100% renewable energy. We're fighting to empower regular voters so we can take back our democracy from billionaires and Super PACs. And we're urging big chains like Subway to go antibiotics-free, so we can stop our industrial food system from overusing antibiotics on animals. 

In short, we're organizing campaigns that can make a concrete difference right now and get our country on a path to a better future. 


We're looking for people who have the passion and the drive it takes to fuel the power of student activism, win positive change, and build for even more victories in the future. 

We're hiring organizers to work on college campuses in Maryland, New Jersey, and Massachusetts.

Reception & Student Project Demos: 6:15 – 7:00 p.m. Banatao Auditorium, Sutardja Dai Hall

Creating for our comfort, providing for our existence, responding to the daily challenges that impact our lives, is a matter of design. There has never been a more exciting or vital time for the presence of design, and the need for “humanism” in design has never been more crucial to our future.

By focusing our talents on the needs of each individual as equal, designers have given birth to a new order: “Inclusivity By Design.” This “Design For All” philosophic challenge doesn’t simply ask “Why?” but rather, “Why not?”

Designer and gerontologist Patricia Moore will examine the potential for this new order by design and explore the opportunities for our lifespan autonomy.
