He collaborates closely with his actors (often amateurs who are also the subjects of the work) to create sociological examinations that ask viewers to contemplate uncomfortable situations and circumstances.
  • Dana Johnson is the author of the short story collection In the Not Quite Dark. She is also the author of Break Any Woman Down, winner of the Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction, and the novel Elsewhere, California.

Work will include collected posters, publications, and typographic projects.
  • Clay, Body is a solo exhibition from artist Sydney Aubert: Unapologetically fat, crass, and sexual, a ceramics artist who also works in video, and whatever other materials arouse her in the moment. Exhibition will be on view from Monday, April 24 - Friday, April 28 at the Bolsky Gallery, Otis College of Art and Design. On view by appointment only, please contact the artist at sydney.aubert@gmail.com Reception: Thursday, April 27 | 6pm-9pm Bolsky Gallery, Otis College of Art and Design

  • Audrey Wollen is a feminist theorist and visual artist based in Los Angeles. Wollen uses social media, such as Twitter and Instagram, as platforms for her work on Sad Girl Theory, a theory which posits that internalized female sadness can be used as a radical and political action, separate from masculinized forms of protests such as anger and violence. She introduces this form of protest as an alternative to masculinized anger and violence.

Faculty Grading Policy

 

 

Grade submission must occur no later than the specified due date.  
  • completed in accordance with College policy, based on the course syllabus, and on 15 weeks (10 weeks during the summer term) of work for the current semester.
  • submitted online.
  • accompanied by course attendance sheets. Federal regulations for financial aid require that these forms be kept on file for a period of no less than one year. The signed attendance sheet may be sent via U.S. mail after grades submission, or may be turned in to your department in person.
 
   
Incomplete Grades  

The grade of "I", or "Incomplete" is issued to students only in cases of emergency such as serious illness or accident (which require a doctor's note), or a death in the family. The student must be in good standing at the time of the emergency, having completed all but the final project, paper, etc.

If granted, the student will have four weeks from the end of the semester in which to complete the course work, at which time the instructor must contact the Office of Registration and Records to indicate a change of grade. (An extension may be granted with the approval of the department chair, if extenuating circumstances warrant special consideration.)

 

If students meet these criteria, they should be instructed to obtain an Incomplete Form from the Office of Registration and Records. The form must state the reason for the incomplete and the work that must be completed. Attach any documentation. Once the student has obtained the necessary signatures, the form should be returned to the instructor for submission to the Office of Registration and Records.

 
   
Students Not Attending  

Students who have been attending class but whose names do not appear on the final grade roster are not officially registered for your class and should not receive a grade. Refer these students to the Office of Registration and Records.


Students whose names appear on the final grade roster and have never attended or have ceased to attend should receive a grade of "UW" (unofficial withdrawal). Use this grade for students who have not completed enough work to warrant a letter grade.

 
   

Faculty Records

 

Keep a copy of your grades and attendance sheet for your records. All copies must be made before the documents are turned over to the college. The Registration Office will not provide copies.
