Artists, craftspeople, and cultural knowledge-makers have been instrumental but not acknowledged as creators of social change through the practice of “everyday politics”. This seminar will explore several types of creative activities, especially those that involve both visual and narrative materials (pictures and stories). We will study how those activities have produced social change, 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. Students will themselves develop the skills to combine creative materials with narrative writing to produce social change.
