Creative Writing Workshop

Course Code:  TENG 360 / ENGL 331
Contact Hours:  45
US Credits:  3

This is a 45-plus hour intensive workshop designed to encourage writers to discover their own voice by experimenting with persona, voice and character. The course will guide the student’s exploration into the realm of his/her own creative resources. To aid in this process of discovery, students perform spontaneous writing exercises in class and during the field trips and excursions. This intensive intersession component will also examine the relationship between the writer and his/her life landscape. Over the course students will read and discuss the work of writers whose travel in other lands has affected, and in a significant way, created the essence of their poems and prose. How does the nature of our travel to a new place impact our writing? How does the heart respond to its new environment? An ongoing element of the workshop will involve student’s own writing, a search for a new vantage point, adding new windows to our perspective.

Digital Photography Journal - Active Island Encounter

Course Code:  TDIG 360 / DIGT 312
Contact Hours:  45
US Credits:  3

Since the invention of photography nearly two centuries ago and the rise of digital technology, the way human beings receive information, see the world, and see themselves has radically changed. In the 21st century photography has established itself as a formidable tool of expression within the arts. Aimed at encouraging creativity, this course will emphasize a critical sense of visual language in contemporary photography using Thailand, and its environs, as inspiration for new work. We will explore a sense of place through encounters with everything that is Thailand including photographic exhibitions where we will investigate social and historical contexts in photography. Camera techniques, photographic principles, and editing fundamentals with software like Photoshop will be covered. Students will participate in group critiques where they will identify an emerging line of personal inquiry in their work, culminating in a creative series or photo essay for the class.
