P639 Back to the Text: Brave New Scripture

This course is a communal exercise in getting “back to the text” by reading and performing together a book of Scripture–each year, a different one. This year, however, we’ll be exploring what a fully online Back to the Text experience will bring and what “brave new Scripture” might look like, in a COVID-19 context. Students will engage a wide variety of texts and artworks, experiment with various ways of reading, rehearsing, and improvising a Scriptural narrative, and finally create an original digital group performance from selected Scriptural texts, which will be offered to the community. This course happens annually in the spring with a different book each year and is open to anyone in all degree programs.
