What K-State Residential CAT Community Should You Be In?

Ever wonder what life was like for average Americans from the colonial period through the end of the 19th century? Find out for yourself in this highly interactive course that combines classroom projects, field research and a hike along the Overland Trail to reveal not only the facts about periods in America's past, but the feel of life in those times as well.

You got: The Art of Hacking Culture

Recently, artists like Matt Garcia (co-teacher of this course) have begun exploring ways to bring art into the world to create interactive experiences, engage communities, and create social and cultural change. Leveraging the insights of anthropology (the study of people and culture), we will examine ways in which people are using art, technology, and design to "hack" culture and create positive change. Together we will brainstorm, plan, develop, and ultimately implement a "culture hack" of our own as a class. The core project of this CAT community will be to "hack" the culture of education by creating our own prototype of a college, using ourselves as the first class. Out of the classroom events will include field trips to see "culture hacks" in action, as well as to implement our own culture hacks.
