The Institute for Linguistics, Image and Text
June 5 – 30, 2017
Come experience Hampshire College’s academic philosophy by linking critical engagement to experience-based education.
The Institute for Linguistics, Image and Text (LIT) is a four-week intensive summer program focusing on the linguistic workings of the human mind and artistic expression. The goal is to synthesize theories of linguistic narration with the practices of artistic creation (written and visual).
Led by Hampshire’s Daniel Altshuler, students will explore central topics in semantics, psycholinguistics, as well as philosophy of language and mind, by applying influential theories to poetic and literary verse, a graphic novel and film. The program will have field trips (including to the Society Of Illustrators in NY) and conclude with students presenting their work in a professional conference setting, in which they will create and analyze their own narrative art in terms of the theory taught in the program.
This program is open to current undergraduates, post-B.A.s, professionals, and high school seniors who will have graduated by spring 2017.
