Critical Printing

by Course Collaborations

This Collection contains works used by the Art, Film, and Visual Studies course "Critical Printing" taught by Prof. Jennifer Roberts and Prof. Matt Saunders. Incorporating both studio and seminar instruction, this intensive course will explore printmaking’s history, trace its particular forms of intelligence, and test its future potential. The class will meet for three hours of studio and two hours of seminar/discussion per week. Assignments will include weekly readings, a short scholarly paper, and two studio projects. For the first half of the semester, students will pursue a rigorous grounding in a particular historical technique (etching/intaglio); in the second half students will translate what they have learned to another medium, thus exploring printmaking as an expanded field of practice.
