The Personal is Political

A group of activists holding signs


Leslie Hill

This course looks at the performance of personal truths in political contexts, challenging inequalities of race, gender, sexual orientation and class through performance, visual art and activism. Students will engage in seminar discussions and exercises on with the works of specific artists and activists. Students will also work individually and in groups on creative and critical projects, exploring strategies for putting their own personal truths into political/public contexts to draw attention to issues they are passionate about.
