50-3403HN Creativity and Eminent People: Towards An Anthology: Honors


This special Honors course focuses on the social impact of certain eminent people of the 1960’s and 1970’s whose creative work transformed the work done in their particular area. The list of such vital individuals might include the everlasting iconic actress Marilyn Monroe or actor/musician Elvis Presley. Included might be the director Augusto Boal who transformed theater as a form of community theater and social change and musician/sound artist Pauline Oliveros contributed to creation and use of technology in music and sound exploration as well as deep listening practice as a form of self and social healing or others such as Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X, whose differential approaches to social change transformed cultural behavior in the United States. The list might also include Rachel Carson, who introduced the link between environmental toxins and cancer, Paul McCartney and John Lennon, whose songs transformed music, fashion, and social attitudes towards recreational drugs. John Cage’s experimental use of natural and created sounds in music, poetry, art, performance, and philosophy, while Jane Goodall’s work with chimpanzees revolutionized our understanding of the relationship between their social system and ours. In consultation with the professor each student in this Social Science course will identity one or two people on which to conduct a biographical analysis following the principles of Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences Theory. The end goal is to develop an anthology for professional publication. This is an Honors class. In addition to other possible pre-requisites, students need a minimum G.P.A. of 3.50 or higher to enroll.
