About: Cultural Encounters

This class will explore the theme of cultural encounters. How do works of art in theater, opera, film, photography, and visual art depict, describe, and decode cultural encounters? How do the arts bridge differences and create cultural connections? How do diverse artistic genres, by relying on acting, singing, stage directions, editing, and visual techniques, engage audiences? Supported by the Macaulay Honors College Cultural Passport, we will look at major artistic works, studying their components and reflecting on the ways that the arts contribute to the rich cultural landscape of New York City.
