Friday 12/19 // Intersectionality Workshop @ Lazarus Center Auditorium
In response to local and national events that (we believe) represent the beginnings of cultural/social/civil shifts taking place in our country and on our campus, we would like to provide the graduate community a supported space and time to process and respond to this changing context.
Please attend the workshop this Friday, December 19, to de-pressurize after a challenging semester and find support as each of us develops an awareness of where we stand in the shift.
Our hope is for this conversation to be the first in a series of workshops focussing on such topics as:
- power and privilege
- identity as a construct
- radical self care

Core DXARTS faculty are practicing generative artists and work alongside affiliate faculty from a variety of other departments, including Music, Neuroscience, Engineering, Law and Computer Science. The program emphasizes interdisciplinarity, with students taking classes across the university based upon their own research trajectories.
