The Carsey-Wolf Center Programming Practicum is a two-credit graduate course open to graduate students in all HFA departments. The course will address processes of designing effective public academic programs, including screenings, academic conferences, and lecture series. It will also explore new ways of curating programs and building events that address the specific constraints created by the current pandemic. Students will work with the Carsey-Wolf Center director to devise virtual and in-person programs for the Carsey-Wolf Center and the Pollock Theater. Class members will discuss readings focused on curation, screen films and other media, research potential guests, and write questions for Q&A sessions. The course will be offered in fall 2020 and winter 2021. It is repeatable for a total of four units, and may be used as an elective course in Film and Media Studies if all four units are taken.
For fall 2020, the course will meet on the following dates: 10/9, 10/23, 11/6, 11/20, and 12/4.
