Spring 2018: ART 394/WST 394, Wednesdays 11:30am – 2:30pm, Ross Blakely Hall, room 171
- What is sexual violence?
- Who defines sexual violence? When and how do definitions change?
- How does sexual violence link to other forms of violence?
- Why is sexual violence so controversial?
- How can art processes be transformative?
We will take an interdisciplinary arts-and humanities-based perspective to explore these and other questions as we trace the history of sexual violence, as well as current attitudes and theories, social and personal narratives, research, and policies on sexual violence (both on and off college campuses).This team-taught Humanities Lab course entails interdisciplinary and intergenerational collaborative research teams and will result in a student-inspired public project designed and produced by the class.
