Your portfolios are here.
In your final portfolio you present your best work of the year to all of us in the course, but also to the public. You will present your portfolios during the last week of the course (over four class sessions).
Those presentations are three minutes long and have two minutes for questions from faculty and fellows. The randomizer generated the order below (screenshot):
5/1 Tuesday morning • final portfolio presentations • public presentations
5/3 Thursday morning • final portfolio presentations • public presentations
5/3 Thursday afternoon • final portfolio presentations • public presentations
5/8 Tuesday morning • final portfolio presentations • public presentations
Course evaluations in class.
all day • alenda lux symposium • present your portfolios in a college-wide setting • 900 Room • 9:00 – 11:30 & 1:00 – 4:30
Your portfolio is your space; you own it and you are responsible for it. For the purposes of our course we grade the Humanities subdomain and your presentation of everything in it, both during the in-class presentations, but also during the Alenda Lux college-wide presentation day.
Your portfolio must contain these elements:
• your research paper
• your definition of revolution (with an gesture—paragraph, footnote, coda, whatever—toward your research paper, as we mentioned in Hance on Thursday afternoon 3/15)
• your definition of (the) humanities
• two revised projects, one from each semester
• a revised version of the “something new” piece from fall semester
• at least two additional new elements, one of which should be non-textual (sound, video, image, interactive, performative)
• an about page that includes an introductory statement to your work and your acknowledgments
You can make final revisions to your portfolio based on feedback from the in-class and college-wide presentations until 5/16 at 5:00.
Your portfolio is public through at least August 15. After that date you may unpublish your humanities subdomain if you choose to for any reason.
