Focus: The Institute for Linguistics, Image and Text (LIT) is a four-week intensive summer program focusing on the linguistic workings of the human mind and artistic expression. The goal is to synthesize theories of linguistic narration with the practices of artistic creation (written and visual).
Minimum Education Level: No Minimum
Special Qualifications: See web

Led by Hampshire's Daniel Altshuler, students will explore central topics in semantics, psycholinguistics, as well as philosophy of language and mind, by applying influential theories to poetic and literary verse, a graphic novel and film. The program will have field trips (including to the Society Of Illustrators in NY) and conclude with students presenting their work in a professional conference setting, in which they will create and analyze their own narrative art in terms of the theory taught in the program. There will be guest speakers, including Prof. Polina Barskova (leading poet and Professor of Russian literature at Hampshire College) and Laura Sizer (Specialist in philosophy of mind, emotion and art, including tattoo art.)

This program is open to current undergraduates, graduate students, post-B.A.s, professionals, and high school seniors who will have graduated by spring 2017.
