Robert Kett & Anna Kryczka: Learning by Doing: Embodied/ Material Encounters at the Farm

• Robert Kett and Anna Kryczka (UC Irvine): $18,500.00 for Learning by Doing: Embodied/ Material Encounters at the Farm
Through an exhibition, conference and publication, we propose to examine an experiment in intercultural exchange, social scientific research and artistic learning that took place at the Farm at UCI, examining its relation to the creation of the new university, attempts to “learn through doing,” and countercultural ferment in the 1960s and 70s. We will offer the university and the community a chance to explore how California modernism, new approaches to education, encounters with “otherness,” and counterculture came together in late 20th Century Irvine.
