Cursos gratuitos: Junio 2017



Como les había mencionado, hace un tiempo descubrí algunas páginas de internet en donde ofrecen cursos online gratuitos. Muchos de los cursos ofrecidos son de temas relacionados con la literatura y me pregunté, ¿por qué no recomendarlos a todos? Aquí los cursos que recomiendo para el mes de junio:


  1. Seeing Through Photographs

“This course aims to address the gap between seeing and truly understanding photographs by introducing a diversity of ideas, approaches, and technologies that inform their making. In this course you will look closely at photographs from the collection of The Museum of Modern Art and hear a variety of perspectives on what a photograph is and the ways that photography has been used throughout its nearly 180 year history: as a means of artistic expression, as a tool for science and exploration; as an instrument of documentation; to tell stories and record histories; and as a mode of communication and critique in our ever increasingly visual culture.”


2. In the Studio: Postwar Abstract Painting

“This course offers an in-depth, hands-on look at the materials, techniques, and thinking of seven New York School artists, including Willem de Kooning, Yayoi Kusama, Agnes Martin, Barnett Newman, Jackson Pollock, Ad Reinhardt, and Mark Rothko. Through studio demonstrations and gallery walkthroughs, you’ll form a deeper understanding of what a studio practice means and how ideas develop from close looking, and you’ll gain a sensitivity to the physical qualities of paint. Readings and other resources will round out your understanding, providing broader cultural, intellectual, and historical context about the decades after World War II, when these artists were active.”



  1. Songwriting: Writing the Lyrics

“There’s a songwriter lurking somewhere inside you, peeking around corners, wondering if it’s safe to come out. Now it is. This course is an invitation to let your inner songwriter step into the sunlight.”


2. Script Writing: Write a Pilot Episode for a TV or Web Series

“In this project-centered course*, you will design a series bible and write a complete pilot episode for your own unique television or web series, be it drama or comedy or something in between. You’ll learn to break down the creative process into components, and you’ll discover a structured process that allows you to produce a polished and pitch-ready script in just a few weeks. Completing this project will increase your confidence in your ideas and abilities, and you’ll feel prepared to pitch your first script and get started on your next.”


3. Transmedia Storytelling: Narrative worlds, emerging technologies, and global audiences

“This course is designed for creative professionals, students, or anyone interested in gaining an ‘inside’ understanding of leading industry storytelling practices in contemporary culture using digital and emerging technologies. If you have a great story idea for entertainment, marketing or social change and want to learn how to develop it into into an engaging multi-platform narrative experience that you can share with the world, then this is the course for you.”



  1. Shylock’s Bond

“An exploration of the magnetic and ambivalent character of Shylock in William Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice.


2. Hamlet’s Ghost

“An exploration of the haunting figure at the heart of one of William Shakespeare’s most famous plays.”


3. Introduction to Ci Poems in the Tang and Song Dynasty

“Explore the origins, representatives, works and important genres of Ci Poetry in the Tang and Song Dynasty.”



  1. Women Have Always Worked: The U.S. Experience 1700 – 1920

“In Part One of Women Have Always Worked, learn how women’s work has changed the home, the workplace, and the nation from the Colonial Period through World War I.”


2. Women Have Always Worked: The U.S. Experience 1920 – 2016

“In Part Two of Women Have Always Worked, learn how women’s work has changed the home, the workplace, and the nation in the 20th century through the present.”


*Recuerden que en las distintas plataformas en donde se encuentran los cursos recomendados hay un sinnúmero de cursos por explorar, no duden en hacerlo. ¡Espero anécdotas de sus experiencias! Hasta pronto.

  1. Muy interesantes todos ellos y a buen seguro muchos lectores querrán darse una vuelta por estos sitios. Con tu permiso voy a coger algún enlace y hacer algo similar en mi blog. Estoy pensando, en concreto, en el de la introducción a la poesía china de la Tsinghua University…
