I sent out a reminder with homework and blog details last week. Please check your city tech email as we’ll use this to send out information that is important to know during the week. Make sure you follow the course schedule on OpenLab for updated readings!

Protests at Brooklyn College

Those of you following the protests surrounding the SOTUS confirmation of Kavanaugh may have missed this local development:

Let’s pay attention to the effects of the protests and talk more about this next week. Too often students think their voice doesn’t matter but public dissent can have real effects.


Class on 9/26–Location Reminder

We will not meet on campus!

We will visit the Fales Library which is inside of the NYU Bobst Library at 1:30pm. Meet outside the main entrance to the library and we will go through security together. Bring a photo ID, a notebook, and a camera.

Here’s a map with location info:

The closest subway station to the Bobst library is the West 4th street station where you can catch the A,C, E, D, B, F, M trains. The library is also walking distance from the R station at 8th street, the 6 train at Bleeker Street, and the 1 station at Houston Street.

Welcome to Learning Places

This is a special topics, interdisciplinary, place-based course. What does that mean?

This course is co-taught by faculty from the Humanities and Library Departments.

During the course of the semester, we will conduct site visits and travel off campus.

The topic for this semester is performance and public space.

The assignments for this course will involve research and live performances that you will participate in, observe, document, and analyze.
