CRIT 302 Representation

3 credits 45.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

What does representation mean? How can art make us feel-or not feel-represented? How have artists from across disciplines created works that challenge beliefs, attitudes, or expectations through representing specific identities and experiences? We will examine these questions and others by unpacking how diverse thinkers and artists invested in the power of representation engage creativity. We will explore topics like representation’s relationships to identity categories like race and gender, intersectionality, meaning making, politics, social justice, and more.
