Illuminations Colloquium C


Do you enjoy attending arts events and engaging in cultural discussion with your peers?

The Illuminations Colloquium (University Studies 43, Course Code 87668), a one unit pass/no pass course, invites you to explore and discuss arts and culture at UCI and in Orange County.  Attend five events and you will earn 1 unit!  As a student in the Illuminations Colloquium, you will attend at least five Illuminations-sponsored events and engage in brief reflective activities.  You’ll meet students from across campus and share a range of experiences, including concerts, dance and theater performances, panel discussions, exhibits, and films. You’ll also have a chance to help shape the Illuminations program by providing feedback on our programs and helping us build new audiences for the arts and culture across campus. Although the class time is listed as Thursdays 6:00-7:20pm, this course does not physically meet. Your events are your class time.

Events to choose from include:  Performances at the Pacific Symphony at Segerstrom Hall, plays at South Coast Repertory Theatre, selected events at the Irvine Barclay Theatre, Claire Trevor School of the Arts performances and a host of literary, musical, philosophical, and dance events organized by UCI faculty. 

Please visit the  Illuminations web site for a sample of events that will be offered in 2020; more events will continue to be added during spring quarter! The course is led by Daphne Lei, Professor of Drama and the interim faculty director of Illuminations. The class time is  Thurs 6:00-7:20 pm, Social Ecology 2, Room 1304; most events will take place on Thursday evenings. Please review the course syllabus here:
