Description

This course will explore the role the arts have played in resisting systemic inequalities, fighting injustice, and giving voice to those on the margins. We will consider the power of art as a component in social movements as well as in times of crisis. Further, we will use the study and practice of art, particularly creative writing, to deepen our understandings of and relationships to the city of Detroit and consider artistic practice as a way of healing and transforming our communities as well as ourselves.

 

While open to any U-M undergraduate student, this course is part of the full curriculum for students accepted into the Semester in Detroit Program. Students interested in this class might want to consider applying to spend the entire fall 2022 semester off-campus in Detroit.
