The purpose of this blog is to provide a forum for class announcements, professor postings, student postings, readings, and responses to readings. The blog will be open only to members of the class. Each week all students are required to post something on the blog (images, videos, links, etc., or their own original work or thoughts). All posts must be accompanied with a brief explanation (45-word minimum) of what each posted or linked item is about. No explanation is required for posts of original thoughts (it’s assumed that such posts will be more than 45words). If an original post uses sources for information and/or ideas, these must be cited in footnotes. Students should link to articles rather than copy and paste entire articles on the blog (to comply with copyright laws). Topics must be related to the art of the contemporary period (post-1970). Students may also be required to respond to readings or specific professor postings. Student posts are due each Monday at 11:59 p.m. beginning with the second Monday (January 14, 2012) and ending on Monday, March 11, 2012. Late posts will not be accepted. More information and more specific instructions are on the course Blackboard page. This information and those instructions must be strictly followed.
