Dance: Cultures and Contexts
Dance: Cultures and Contexts, a course developed as part of UC Riverside’s world-renowned dance studies program, explores the significance of dance by introducing historical and cultural contexts for various dance practices. Students will approach the study of dance as art form, as cultural practice and as a way to understand histories of race, gender, sexuality, class, and nation.
Dance 7 is an online class. This course will take place entirely online, with both synchronous and asynchronous parts. Students are required to register for a TA-moderated online discussion section that meets at a specific time each Friday, and then to log in to that discussion section at that time each week. Students will be able to follow all lectures and required activities on their own schedule, with assignments due at set times each week.
To take this course, you must have: regular access to a computer capable of easily playing YouTube videos, preferably one purchased in the last 2 or 3 years, with a camera and a microphone (preferably a headset with a microphone). Students should have access to a high-speed internet connection, preferably by an ethernet cable; and a Skype account, in case a conversation with the instructor or TA is required, or to attend video office hours.
