Events
  • In his lecture, Laurence Rickels reenters the exchange between Walter Benjamin and Alexander Mette, which led to Mette’s review of Ursprung des deutschen Trauerspiels in Imago and brought Benjamin to consider the clinical picture of schizophrenia, the topic of Mette’s dissertation-book, which he in turn reviewed.

  • Artist Anna Craycroft, of the current exhibition Tuning the Room in Ben Maltz Gallery, in discussion with artist and curator Micah Silver.

  • Emily Thorpe's art work addresses the twisting formation of memory through spatial relations and moments of domesticity. She will be presenting a solo exhibition for her Graduate Thesis at The Bolsky Gallery, Otis College of Art & Design, on view February 20 to February 25, 2017. There will be a closing reception on Saturday, February 25, 6-9pm.

  • You can easily spot The Little Friends of Printmaking in a crowd—their inky hands and clothes are a dead giveaway. Their work is just as distinctive. JW & Melissa Buchanan first made a name for themselves through their silkscreened concert posters, but soon branched out into further fields, designing fancy junk for whoever would pay them money. In addition to their work as illustrators and designers, they've continued their fine art pursuits through exhibitions, lectures, and artists’ residencies, spreading the gospel of silkscreen to anyone inclined to listen.

  • "In publishers’ terms, Shock and Awe – a hefty, intellectual book about glam rock – is timely." - Jude Rogers, The Guardian

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.
