Arts Immersion

Arts Immersion trips give Stanford students an insider’s view into cultural capitals.

2017-18 Arts Immersion Trip: March 24 - 31, 2018

Students travel with Nicholas Jenkins, Associate Professor of English, for a week-long engagement with the arts, meeting institutional leaders, policy makers, and arts practitioners. They visit museums, galleries, concert halls; they see dance rehearsals, opera, and a Broadway show (Hamilton in 2016!), and have a chance to meet with alumni in the arts. In the spring quarter class Art in the Metropolis (ARTSINST 11Q), students revisit their Immersion experience by reading critical literature and participating in rigorous discussion.
