Special Projects (HIS4750.01)

Eileen Scully

This course is an opportunity for students to pursue individual and collaborative interdisciplinary independent projects, whether in the exploratory phase or already underway. In early weeks, we workshop and finalize project ideas to produce individual contracts. These contracts include arrangements for each student to receive preliminary consultation on proposals and culminating review of completed work by recognized experts here in the Bennington College community or beyond. Class meetings thereafter are opportunities to learn and hone project-centered capacities, to present and discuss work-in-progress, and to consult one-on-one with the instructor. Recent projects have included sixth-term thesis proposals, seventh- and eight-term research papers, historically grounded short stories and animations, curatorial guides, and video documentaries.

Prerequisites: Email the Instructor (escully@bennington.edu) during Registration, a brief statement outlining the sort of project that might be undertaken in the course. Applicants will be notified by return email.
