ART 4280 Photography Studio Accelerated/Summer 2022 In this intensive 2-week creative photography course held at the Doel Reed Center in northern New Mexico, OSU students will explore the unique aesthetic and technical possibilities of the 4x5 view camera. This classic photographic tool requires deliberate control over all aspects of the image making process — working on a tripod, composing the image upside down on the ground glass, exposing a single piece of sheet film at a time. Successful engagement with this methodology will lead to a deeper understanding of the medium, while providing a window into its rich history. Students will be provided a view camera, tripod, film, chemistry, and other necessary materials to process their images. Course time will include technical demonstrations, shooting exercises, lab time, field trips, discussion, and critique.

ENGL 4400 Writing the Native City from New Mexico Summer Intersession 2022 From the Santa Fe Indian School to Indian Market to the Institute of American Indian Arts, Indigenous Oklahomans have been at the vanguard of arts cultures of northern New Mexico. Oklahoma writers in particular have a history of participation in the Santa Fe and Taos writers’ communities, revealing traces of Oklahoma’s historical and creative influence on northern New Mexico. In this course, we will study the New Mexico writings of Indigenous writers from Oklahoma, considering them in a critical framework that brings together the regional, the urban, and settler colonialism, as well as Indigenous Studies methodologies and the unique arts cultures that inform them. We will read and interpret Lynn Riggs’s under-studied Santa Fe poems and his avant garde film, “A Day in Santa Fe.” We will also read selections from Joy Harjo’s Crazy Brave memoir and her own New Mexico poems, considering how the avant garde scene of 1930s New Mexico segued into the hippiedom that Harjo describes. Finally, we will view Sterlin Harjo’s comedy video set at Indian Market, “I’m an Indian Too,” and his documentary about Native Arts, Love and Fury, introducing a discussion of how the pressures of gentrification and urban development are shaping New Mexico’s current arts scene.
