Washington State University -- Spring 2017


Questions will be drawn from the material after the first exam: that's Kitchen Sink Art, Jealousy, Minimalist Music, on through to the end of all other materials since. Check the online updated syllabus for an index, and Blackboard for all art movements and images, music tracks, and links to literature notes and quotations.

I. IDENTIFICATIONS. [Total 26 points.]

Maybe identify who is A... or the composer of the music of Koyaanisqatsi -- that kind of question. These questions will be inflicted individually during the first part of the exam: that's Wednesday, April 19th.

II. QUOTATIONS. [Total 50 points.]

A combination of identification and significance questions will follow quotations from the literature, art images, music excerpts, film clips, and the other relevant materials selected for their representativeness of our discussions on key points ever since the previous exam. In the spirit of 21st-century cooperation (?), or desperation, this section of the exam may be a collaborative effort: that is, you may work with other in the class. Just be wise in your establishment of boundaries; there is no reason you need to accept any teaming up at the last minute any knave who you're not sure you've even seen in class during most of the semester. You certainly may opt to work solo.

III. TAKE-HOME ESSAY. [Total 24 points.]

Answer the following question with brilliant critical thinking, originality, and superb writing skills. The essay should be a virtuoso piece of glory manifested in impressive eloquence, with facile reference to specifics from the materials, properly documented, to the tune of about three to four (3-4) pages or more, double-spaced. This take-home component of the exam must be submitted as hard-copy in class on the exam day.
