DANC374: Blood, Muscle, Bone: The Anatomy of Wealth and Poverty

bloodmusclebone6-25-13Looking for another class? Ready to jump in to the interdisciplinary nature of dance at Wesleyan? This semester our Dance department is offering an exciting new course for those who want to learn more about how social justice can intersect and inform dance.

This fall, choreographers Jawole Willa Jo Zollar and Liz Lerman combine their artistic methods to teach students interested in bridging academic and artistic research in DANC374: Blood, Muscle, Bone: The Anatomy of Wealth and Poverty. Zollar and Lerman are asking new questions about how these conditions are defined and will explore issues surrounding wealth disparity and its impact on the body. This course is multi-disciplinary and will culminate in a performance-based teach-in. Guest faculty include: Bill Arsenio, professor of Psychology, Yeshiva University; Lois Brown, professor of African American Studies and English; and Wendy Rayack, associate professor of Economics.

Non-traditional course consisting of three weekend intensives. No dance experience required. Contact eroosbrown@wesleyan.edu for POI details.
