Summer 2017 Classes

Drama 809

Comedy in French Cinema

Comedy, one of the oldest examinations of the human condition, is universal. Portrayed in a comic or satirical tone depicting amusing people and incidents, comedic characters ultimately triumph over adversity. Humor and satire also examine and reflect upon situations pertaining to the characters’ social and cultural groups as expressed in their language. This course examines Francophone (French speaking) comedic cinema through continent, culture and social nuances. Films are subtitled.

How to Write Cowboy Poetry

Have you wondered what it would be like to write cowboy poetry or lyrics? In this class we will read poetry by well known cowboys past and present, listen to their recordings, learn how to write our own cowboy poetry or lyrics, and maybe someday read a poem at one of the Cowboy Poetry Gatherings held throughout America’s Western States, including Loomis, California, or at open mic in Lincoln. Cowboy poetry is fun!
