well that took an extraordinarily long time. the papers are finally graded so I can go shower and think about their next paper assignment. I'm not sure how to word it to get them to start thinking about the relevance of Theory to artistic practice. I see so many connections it is hard to pin any particular one down and I fear that any attempt I make to articulate one in a paper assignment is just going to confuse the hell out of them. I mean I want them by the end of class to be able to produce something that shows that they appreciate the significance of this course, but I'm not sure we are there yet.

maybe something about expression should be a paper topic. last time I had them choose one term from one author and to figure out its definition for that author by consulting the text. I was going to have them choose a term over two authors this time, but I'm not sure I want to go that slow. there are only three papers and I would like them to be able to practice something like real critical interpretation and defining terms is not quite the essence of the procedure although it is important.

shower. thought. something will come to me.
