Fall 2018, Arch 203 – Of
This thesis seminar is the fourth part of an ongoing series of thesis seminars. The three previous seminars, titled “Not ”, “The ”, and “Two or Ten ” all used a simple fill in the blank statement as a point of departure. In each case, the blank form of the title provided a structure for the course while leaving the content of the seminar blank for thesis students to “fill in.” Besides the title, each course was organized around a series of longer fill in the blank statements that asked students to develop their thesis topics within the boundaries of the course’s format. This course will continue using this format while doubling the number of blanks left to fill. This year, students will be asked to supply two topics for the seminar and mine the potential of those topics when they encounter each other through the word "of."
