CPJ 6401. El Salvador Travel: International Experience/Transnational Identity. 3 Credits.
The travel component of the course provides an opportunity for cultural exchange and for the application of an integrated model of art and social practice in a global/local context. By in situ exploration, conducting video interviews of artists and key cultural figures, and by leading educator workshops for youth, Corcoran students partner with students in El Salvador, empower young people, provide new models of engagement, and together construct a visual document of the artistic scene of the 1980s in El Salvador and its relevance to the current, transnational, cultural milieu. Travel expenses for CPH 3401 are additional. Pre-requisite: CPH 3400/6400 or permission by the instructor.
