Full course description

Instructor: Bryce Lankard

In a time of confinement, many of us have had the opportunity to do deep dives into our personal archives. These archives might be family photos, personal projects or a life’s work, letters, recipes, audio and video recordings, or ephemera. The challenge is how to make sense of these materials. In this class, we will share our collected materials, and through group feedback,  edit and sequence photographs and other materials to find meaningful narratives. Students should have the capacity to digitize analog images and artifacts. We will meet virtually via Zoom and work in pairs and as a class for a shared experience.Our goals and potential outcomes will be unique to each student, whether that’s to discover a family history narrative, encapsulate life during a pandemic, create a short movie, a book, a cookbook, or collages, among other possibilities.  Together we will clarify each student’s personal vision and style to refine a singular project.

Additional Information:

This online course will be held using Zoom. The instructor will send further instructions for class access and equipment needed closer to the start date.
