Resisting Categories: Non-Narrative Poetics

Dates: October 5 - December 14, 2020

Meets: M from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM

Location: CE Zoom Classroom

Fall Tuition: $750

Drawing from the on-screen social texts of global queer cinema, students in this online seminar explore narrative/nonnarrative strategies for reconsidering representations of sexuality and/or desire beyond established binaries. Our goal is to produce new approaches to understanding, portraying, and generating nuanced LGBTQ+ storytelling. We also delve into experimental forms while working toward a final project that incorporates the ideas and techniques covered in class. Participants devote class time to discussing the approaches they have chosen and conceptually advancing their visual storytelling. This class is limited to 12 students. All orientations welcome.


Open to all skill levels: Students ranging from beginner to experienced will be successful in classes Open to All Skill Levels.

Note: Participants are expected to know how to work with their own camera(s)—and have working knowledge of the audio visual editing software of their choice. All camera formats welcome.

Fee: $750.00
