After a tenure as director of liberal arts for Boston Conservatory from 1988 to 2015, Judson Evans is now a full-time professor in the Liberal Arts Department at Berklee College of Music.
He teaches two poetry workshops, Microcosm/Macrocosm and Experiments in Form & Collaboration, as well as two humanities electives, The Cave: Inquiry into the Origins of Art, Religion, and Philosophy and Crossing Cultures: Greece & Japan.
"Students have regularly spoken of the way my classes have stimulated their curiosity in aspects of culture, history, and art they hadn't encountered before. They have remarked on the ways projects and assignments have challenged them to synthesize their personal and professional skills and interests with aspects of reading, writing, and research. Many students in my poetry workshops have gone on to write, publish, and collaborate with other artists, bringing together their literary skills with their lives as composers, dancers, musicians, and actors."
"I have always viewed my academic studies as raw material for my own artistic work as a poet and have approached teaching as an extension of my belief that academic exploration can feed artistic inspiration and vice versa. For example, my curriculum for The Cave: Inquiry into the Origins of Art, Religion, and Philosophy was a direct outgrowth of the three years of reading and research, as well as travel, I did writing a book of poetry on Werner Herzog's documentary The Cave of Forgotten Dreams. American poet Theodore Roethke said, 'A teacher is someone who conducts his education in public,' and I illustrate this principle in my teaching with passion and rigor. I believe in lifetime learning and following artistic impulses into in-depth reading and research."
