WA5339 Research Methods for World Arts

Course Summary

After completing this course, students will be able to describe and interact with the people, structures, dynamics, meanings, and processes involved in creativity and performance in an ethnolinguistically defined community. They will be able to plan and perform research tasks using methodologies such as interview, observation, participation, note taking, and audio and video-recording, in ways that will help answer questions such as the following: What kinds of arts exist locally? How do arts function in local, regional, and international communities? Which art forms might be most appropriate to carry Christian messages? What factors might affect the acceptance or rejection of indigenous-style performances by community members?
