In this seminar we will attend literary, art, and musical performances in and around Berkeley to introduce first-year students to the astonishing range of cultural production on the campus and in the Bay Area. We will visit the Berkeley Art Museum and the Hearst Museum, as well as, if possible, museums in Oakland and San Francisco; we will attend dance, theater, and musical performances at Zellerbach Hall and elsewhere on campus; and we will view at least one film at the Pacific Film Archive. We will engage in discussion based on short response papers by the students in the seminar. This seminar is part of the Connections@Cal initiative. This seminar is a Berkeley Arts Seminar. Admission to the on-campus arts events included in this course will be provided at no cost to students. This seminar is part of the Food for Thought Seminar Series.

Field trip and performance dates and arrangements will be discussed in class.

This 1-unit course may not be counted as one of the twelve courses required to complete the English major.
