Access, Equity & Justice

Fall 2020

Taught By: Sam Mejias

Section: A

CRN: 7774

Credits: 3

Communities of color are largely under-recognized and under-compensated in fields of art and design, despite huge cultural contributions. In this thematic course we will explore issues of equity and access within art and design fields while unpacking structures of power and privilege as they relate to these issues. Building on the historical and contemporary legacies of related movements and initiatives selected for the semester, participants will develop related advocacy and leadership skills. In order to create a sustainable framework for this form of leadership, developing practices of self and community care will be central to our collective work.

Open to: As this course is a required component of the Parsons Scholars Program fellowship, enrollment in this course will be contingent on acceptance to the fellowship. Permission required.
