Educating for Inclusion

Spring 2020

This Lab will use the ASU charter as a basis for identifying urgent educational issues around access and inclusion that continue to shape our world. This investigation will be hands-on, as we arrange site visits to schools that were on the front lines of American battles over education for Indigenous Peoples and African Americans. Collaborate with others to develop approaches for creating a more inclusive society here at ASU and in communities beyond the university.

Working Bodies and Technology

Spring 2020

Bodies were once the computers and machines that drove the world but twentieth- and early twenty-first-century technologies have upended that. Learn what role the smelling, tasting, moving body plays as more jobs are being turned over to computers. What type of work do we want for our bodies? We will connect art and science through exploratory, collaborative workshops along with hands-, mouth-, nose-, and feet activities.

Life without Earth

Spring 2020
