CNET Friday Seminars and Beyond
OCT 16 | RIP: A Remix Manifesto
Culture Always Builds On the Past: Did Muddy Waters build on the blues? And did Led Zeppelin build on Muddy Waters? Does Girl Talk need permission to build on all of it? Join CNET English 100 students in a Friday afternoon screening of Brett Gaylor’s provocative NFB documentary on copyright, creativity, and the future. A moderated discussion will follow. Light refreshments served. Running time: 1hr 26min.

OCT 23 | PAYING HOMAGE
Join CNET English 100 students in a Friday afternoon excursion to the Contemporary Art Gallery for a guided tour of Paying Homage.
