Active Reading to Improve Your Writing

GradPathways Writing and Publishing How often do you read an article or book and later forget the main arguments and/or significance of those arguments? Does this “forgetting” make your writing process more challenging? The way you read articles, books, and other scholarship influences what you are able to write, how you are able to write it, and how effective or persuasive that writing is. This workshop will introduce you to active reading strategies—such as annotating texts and reading from a rhetorical and critical perspective—that will help you to not only remember the key points of what you read but also to write about what you have read long after you have read it. Employing active reading strategies will help you to engage with and make critical connections among the scholarly texts that you will need to draw on when writing your dissertation chapters and articles. In this workshop, you come to see how reading and writing are interdependent, recursive processes.

Mary Heilmann: Squaring Davis / William T. Wiley and the Slant Step: All on the Line

Manetti Shrem Museum "William T. Wiley and the Slant Step: All on the Line" features William T. Wiley’s formative early works (1962-69) and also reunites various works inspired by the odd, iconic Slant Step art object, which jump-started conceptual art in Northern California, and debuts a brand-new digital Slant Step work by Wiley’s grad student, Bruce Nauman.  "Mary Heilmann: Squaring Davis": Decades before she would become a preeminent contemporary abstract painter, Heilmann started studying with William T. Wiley at UC Davis and found a place whose unique life-as-art ethos meshed with her spirit and inspired her to keep creating art despite her doubts. This exhibition reunites Heilmann’s Northern California oeuvre of rarely seen ceramics from the mid-1960s, sculptures and a group of “Davis Square” paintings created in 1977.  The museum is open 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Monday, and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.  Image: Mary Heilmann, Davis Sliding Square, 1977.

Heartbeat Opera | Beethoven’s Fidelio

Mondavi Center Opera is an artistic medium that articulates and confronts human passions with powerful immediacy. This conviction is what drives Heartbeat Opera’s desire to rejuvenate opera and to transform its recognized masterpieces from venerated relics into freshly challenging encounters.   In this stunning adaptation of Beethoven’s Fidelio, a black activist is wrongfully incarcerated.  His wife, Leah, disguises herself to infiltrate the system and free him. But when injustice reigns, one woman’s grit may not be enough to save her love.  Fidelio’s live cast of five singers and seven musicians are joined by a prerecorded virtual chorus of more than 100 incarcerated singers from six prison choirs in the United States. The result is “Imaginative, vital and heartbreaking” (The New Yorker).  This daring work pits corruption against courage, hate against hope. Campus Location: Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts. Room: Jackson Hall. Location of Event: UC Davis Campus. Event Type: Arts and Entertainment. Presented by: Mondavi Center Presenting Program. Saturday, February 19, 2022, 7:30 PM – 10:30 PM.
