Transcultural Experience: Scotland in Symbol and Emblem
Noon, Wednesday, February 22, 2017
Sadie’s Place, Main Level – Kent Library
Under the guidance of faculty member Emily Booth, Southeast’s Art Department has been facilitating international travel for its students since 2011. With interdisciplinary topics and team-teaching, Emily has crafted a dynamic and energized program of arts exploration that, while focusing on the arts as a jumping-off place of academic and creative investigation, is open to all Southeast students, regardless of major.
In 2016, Emily enlisted the talents of colleague, friend and Art Department head of Graphic Design, Professor Louise Bodenheimer to team teach a course entitled, “Scotland Through Symbol and Emblem: Examining Scottish Culture Through Visual Imagery”. At the Feb 22nd Athenaeum talk, Profs Bodenheimer and Booth, as well as students who participated in the Scotland trip, will give listeners a description of the breadth of topics covered in this experiential course and their adventures on the 2-week excursion to Edinburgh, Glasgow and the Highlands in Scotland. Some examples of creative projects in this course will be on display near Sadie’s Place and questions about past, present and future trips Prof Booth has planned are welcomed!
