Central Questions

Over the course of the year, students in Perspectives in Literature and Composition will be asked to revisit four questions that are central to our inquiry.

  1. What were the major concerns that shaped culture, literature, and the arts during the postmodern (post-WW2) era?
  2. What artistic and literary techniques became mainstream over the course of the postmodern era?
  3. How do artists/writers/filmmakers use techniques like bricolage and remix, what possibilities do they offer, and what ethical questions do they raise?
  4. What considerations should creators (authors, filmmakers, artists) consider when combining modes of expression (text, images, audio, video).
