RSP 205 - Exploring Culture, On Campus & Off

Exploring sites at USM and beyond, this course offers “open, accessible, inclusive, and welcoming” experiences of culture in the community. Students will visit gallery spaces, attend local theater productions, and practice their own culture making and critique. We’ll examine relationships between words and images, inspiration and expression, theory and design. As we engage with current examples in these venues, several questions arise: How does culture reflect and embody ideas and values? What is the role of the artist and the audience? How can we define cultural literacy? What are the ethics of looking?

Prerequisite(s): Open to all USM stuents who have completed College Writing (ENG 100  or equivalent).
