Narratives of School Shootings
Fall 2023: Monday and Wednesday, 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm (onground)
Walton Center for Planetary Health, Room 409
Have youth been such successful advocates around gun violence policy change?
What plans do schools have in place for dealing with school violence?
How can we better support youth development in schools to prevent gun violence?
What is the role of parents in the gun violence narrative?
How does the narrative around school shootings influence perceptions and policies?
Students in this Humanities Lab will investigate the ways that youth interface with the gun violence narrative, from being victims of school shootings, to advocacy, to school-based prevention efforts. Due to differences in the distribution of gun violence by gender, race/ethnicity, and geographic location, it is impossible to have these conversations without acknowledging the historical and contextual determinants of gun violence.
- Collaborators TBA
Students will share their findings with the general public in a format of their choosing. Check this page at the end of the semester for more information.
