Primary Instructor:

Artists, craftspeople, and cultural knowledge-makers have been instrumental but not acknowledged as creators of social action. This seminar will explore several types of creative work such as performances, exhibits, and lectures – especially those that involve both visual and narrative materials (pictures and stories). We will study how such activities have produced social action, especially among disadvantaged or stigmatized groups (like youth, persons with brain disorders, prisoners, the elderly, people with HIV/AIDS) in the United States and South Africa. Using methods from community psychology students will learn ways to assess critically creative work and social action.
