Ways of Knowing: The Use of Creative Research in Artmaking Practices
Liz Lerman, founder of the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange taught a new, cross-disciplinary course in the Spring of 2011. Ways of Knowing: The Use of Creative Research and Artmaking Practices, was a cross-listed dance and physics course. This course investigated the various means of expressing knowledge and analyzed the impact these forms have on the understanding of the maker, as well as on the intended audience, whether through book or blog, digital or live, private or public performance. Her course was co-taught by the chair of the Physics Department, faculty members from Astronomy and Religious Studies.
