Y is for Yoga 

Stemming from the Sanskrit verb yuj, or "to yoke," yoga is a series of physical, philosophical, and spiritual practices designed to integrate all aspects of human consciousness. That which conventional Western culture understands to be "yoga" is, in fact, a highly-watered down version of this multifaceted and ancient tradition. While the poses, or asanas, form the center point of Westernized …

Call Him daverafe: One David’s Introduction to the Other David’s Primer 

Maybe it was written in the stars that a David would write the other David's primer introduction. Or maybe it was only written in the GoogleDoc. Believe whichever truth you choose, but believe this truth along with it: David Adler's primer is nothing like Dave Rafe's. David Adler's primer pays no attention to the aesthetic …

Introducing Kiran’s(klp2140) Primer 

Although I felt sorry for not knowing who Kiran was, it was an interesting feeling to get to know Kiran first through her (hopefully you are female??) unique and mysterious name (trying to figure out who would be the one that would match this name among the faces I saw in class...), and then through …

T is for Theatre, Themes, and Taymor, Julie 

I have always loved theatre, and throughout my life I've made it a priority to stay involved in the field. Generally I do this as an actress or audience member, but in my liberal arts undergrad program I was also able to experiment with direction, design, playwriting, and textual interpretation and criticism. More recently, I've gotten …

Introduction to Dadler’s Primer 

“Anyway, the point is, it seems to me that the act of matching a form with content is often an attempt to merge education with aesthetic experience. Bam. There’s our class right there” (Dadler). The commingling of humor, aestheticism, literature, Robot Chicken, doodles, and fighting swans present in Dadler’s primer indicates how this class’s issues …

Introduction by Jenny Coniff Costanza's primer is a wonderful, quirky exploration of the intersections and overlapping planes of neuroscience and art (E is for embodied cognition, D is for default mode).

An Introduction for Jessica Lussier’s Primer 

I distinctively remember the first time I met Jessica Lussier; it was on the first day of our Education and the Aesthetic Experience class. I sat in the same table as her and immediately gravitated towards her quick wit, eclectic style, and warm personality. I was a nervous wreck; Spring 2014 marked my first semester …

V is for Vision 

We often connect art and aesthetic experiences with vision, or use "vision" as a metaphor for describing the perspective which shapes those experiences. In this stunning documentary, Esref Armagan, a blind Turkish artist with a remarkable sense of kinesthetic "vision" challenges these conceptions, creating accurate depictions of color and linear perspective through touch and imagination. …

U is for Us 

It's interesting to see how this primer's evolved into a collective experience for us, especially as the posts get more frequent, fast, and furious. We're responding to each other's ideas, creating new posts inspired by the changing content, and seeing different sides of one another based on what we generate to fill our respective alphabetical …

L is for Listen 

Once upon a time, we were going to create a class playlist or something. I don't think that happened. Before it's too late, here's a sampling of the playlist -- heavy on the "list," not on the "play" (L is also for Lazy) -- of the songs I listen to when I'm doing WRITING work. …

Z is for Zydeco 

Originating in southwestern Louisiana, zydeco is a form of fast-tempo music which combines jazz, blues, R&B, and traditional Cajun/Creole melodies. Zydeco's folky roots are evidenced in its common use of a washboard as an instrument, and its prevalence at informal community dance gatherings. Whenever I hear this type of music, it reminds me of my …
