2012 

I “plopped” the introductory blurb of the syllabus into the appropriate field of wordle.net (a toy for generating “word clouds”), played with the settings, and this is what came up. The visualization of more frequently used terms in a tag-cloud style confronts me with my own ideas, desires, and preconceptions. Based on my text, music, sound and cultures are predominant; Israel is bigger than Palestine; Diaspora, diversity, world and present are essential; and unexpected connections ar the key.
