Ms is for Memory through Smell

Field Study proposal excerpt

The student will read and assess poetry pertaining to scent in regards to memory. She will engage fellow classmates in poetry writing in an atmosphere of scent throughout the quarter and create Cento (or “Scento”) poems with those works; as well as creating “Scento” poems from perfume/fragrance jingles. The student will participate in weekly seminars and create short works of poetry and/or prose in response to weekly readings. She will develop a greater sense of how smell and memory are connected in our neural networks. At the end of the quarter the student will present her work to her class in the form of two written chapters and a final presentation.
