How do we live knowing that who we are and what we do, what we like and how we love, is considered by many to be of lesser value? The course will touch on questions of inequality as it relates to economic disparities, political oppression, gender, sexuality, immigration, health, and popular culture. We will not focus principally on the causes of and solutions to inequality but, rather, on practical ways in which people may carve out a space for themselves within a hostile system that often sees them as less than fully human. We will look at everyday tactics, such as tinkering, repurposing, sharing, mocking, making do, etc.

The course includes post-1970 films and literary texts and is conducted in French.
