must course for next term

Here's part of the description of a course to be taught next term at the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University:

Further consideration will be given to the emergence of new modalities of beholding (structured temporality, boredom, surveillance, reading as viewing, site/nonsite); in this regard, a broader contextual consideration of the rise of new mediums such as video, installation, and Land art will also be discussed.

Makes you want to just run out and register. And, no, I don't know why "Land" is capitalized. Perhaps it has to do with regional German art.
