NEW YORK UNIVERSITY will offer the Hemispheric Institute Seminar for course credit. This option is available to both NYU and non-NYU students. You should apply through NYU Summer Programs on-line: www.nyu.edu/summer

This course offers students the opportunity to work with some of the most outstanding scholars and artists in the Americas on the topic "Globalization, Migration, and the Public Sphere" for a two week, intensive seminar in Peru. The seminar is comprised of daily workshops, mini scholarly seminars, theatre, installations, and performances, working groups and round-table discussions. Students will engage in collaborative projects with other students in the Americas-including Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Cuba-and present a work-in-progress presentation as a final assignment. These projects can be a written paper, a performance, or a joint presentation on collaborative work. Workshops in the past have included masking, performing with objects, performance as activism, indigenous performance traditions, dance from various parts of the Americas (i.e. Afro-Cuban, Samba) and web technologies for art, activism, and education. Mini seminars focus on comparatist themes in the Americas: performance theory, feminist and gay/lesbian performance, ethnic performance, art and activism, and other topics of hemispheric importance. Nightly performances feature major artists.There is a $250 materials fee for the course in addition to New York University's tuition. For an additional fee of $500, students have the option of participating in a three-day festival of masked performance in the Andean town of Paucartambo following the seminar.
