HUM 314: The Creative Life

Class Program
Credits 3

From Barbara McClintock to Bill Gates, from Yo Yo Ma to Twyla Tharp, men and women the world over have dared to dream, to take risks, to encounter the unknown. Their extraordinary creative force has broken traditional models and changed the way we look at the world. Through literature including biography, memoir, and letters, as well as film, we will appraise the creative life of individuals whose experience and accomplishments have inspired us to think originally, and challenged us to live, active and creative lives.
