Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2020-2021. Courses of Study 2021-2022 is scheduled to publish by July 1.

Using creative technology (documentary film, augmented reality, DJ'ing) as a mode of storytelling, students will engage in collaboration, design, and towards a transmedia installation, including visual and sonic elements. No technical experience in filmmaking is required, the course will be divided between theoretical textual analysis and documentary workshops. By centering ecologies and the rural experience, we look to the materiality of deep time through the soil as a storyteller in order to understand thousands of years of human history. The landscape of Ithaca, with the overlap of Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫ' (Cayuga) homelands and the Underground Railroad, is a focal point and case study for theorizing rural and agricultural entanglements as global stories.
