Underwater Basket Weaving, Spring 2011 Edition

Written by

A Hopi basket weaver circa 1900.

Wikipedia tells us that “In weaving willow baskets, a trough of water is needed in which to soak the dried willow rods. They are then left to stand until pliable and ready to be used in weaving. The weaving is, however, not done under water.” With that tidbit of information under our belts, registration for Spring Term 2011 begins next Monday, which means it’s time to plan what you’re going to take next semester for Bwog’s semesterly roundup of ridiculously-named courses. Please note that not all of these match the implications of “underwater basket weaving,” but instead simply have ridiculous names prone to misinterpretation. If you happen to come across any courses with humorous names that we missed, please leave them in the comments.

    some of these are not ridiculous at all. i.e. "social theory and the city."

    I signed up for W3018 last year. I ended up dropping it cause I couldn't find it.
