Literature of the Sciences [Janee Baugher]

All Levels | This reading course explores the intersection of art and science. Discussion will include: the psychological basis for art; the concept of art-for-art’s sake; how improvisation can lead to insight and alchemy; the rejection of “inspiration”; and the theory that art first and foremost must inform its maker. We’ll read and discuss excerpts of poetry and prose from writers who use the sciences as fodder, and we’ll try one or two in-class writing exercises geared toward writing-through-discovery.
