MFA in Book Art and Creative Writing
Course Description

Paris in public & private; Voicing innovation in the 1920s

Paris in post-war 1920s was a vibrant center of experimentation. Writers, artists and musicians challenged notions of gender, sexuality and, for U.S. expatriates, American conceptions about race, through their lives and creative work. This hybrid seminar-studio class will combine hands-on work in the book art studios with reading, discussion and the completion of creative projects. We will use the important resources of Mills’ Special Collections as a lens into the Modernist movement in art, performance and the ‘new world’ of printing and publishing by women. Field trips, guest artists
