How do we write literature and make art that captures the experience of the places we visit as tourists? What strategies are available beyond the obvious ones? Through writing and the making of visual art, how can we see and record aspects of the daily life of a community that might go unremarked or unknown otherwise? The historic town of San Miguel, Mexico, with its rich history of art and literature, provides an unparalleled opportunity to explore these questions. This winter-session course focuses on the intersection of writing and bookmaking. Through a series of hands-on seminars and workshops, students will learn how to transform the raw materials of their sketchbooks and notebooks into fully realized literary texts in a variety of hand-made book forms. Two major book projects, one collaborative and one independent, will be required. Note: This course carries an additional fee which includes triple occupancy lodging, daily breakfast, materials fee for the duration of the course, and airport transportation. Airfare and tuition are additional, as is an optional excursion. Please contact the department for details.
