Trying to help my friend construct a sculpture earlier this month pushed me into foreign territory. I found myself wishing that I knew more about physics. It didn’t help when I looked around and saw this:
A creation by Chendru Starkloff who is using his understanding of physics and tapping in to professors here to make some really interesting work.
The assignment for the Intro to Sculpture class was to create a sculpture that captures a movement you do everyday. His action: mounting his bike.
The Bennington Sustainable Food Project is cooking up a storm in the kitchen in preparation for the Co-op’s debut at Sunfest tomorrow.
International Studies encompasses a wide range of things. What your curriculum can look like depends on how you approach it. This is a mock-up of some of the possibilities. (Pardon my bad handwriting)
Most students here will organize their work around a central theme so if within International studies you were really interested in the way America interacts with the world you might be inclined to take Anthropology, Film, Politics and Social Psychology classes that’ll allow you to examine that interaction from different perspectives.
Studying International Relations (read communication between sovereign states) with a special interest in developing countries and Japan has led me to take a lot of Politics classes and draw more broadly from the social science curriculum and foreign language study. If you’d like to speak a little more about the specifics of your interest and how that might play out at Bennington, shoot me an e-mail at email@example.com
