Art, Activism and Social Change

This course covers a range of topics, disciplines, theoretical frameworks, and case studies that question how people create visual art objects that have political and social effects, including how art helps to advance the work of activists and how artists enable activists to think more creatively. Further, what role do academics play in this equation? Social justice movements often use the work of academics and artists to support and further their aims. Students explore how art works, and works on, viewers and how we can work interdependently with others to effect social change.
