What are the stakes of “diversity” in the university, and what is its future? How does it relate to social justice? Who benefits from “diversity”? Does anyone lose? How do the terms “equity” and “inclusion” modify “diversity”? What are the social implications of these combined terms and their implementation? How do their uses in the United States relate their uses in other global contexts such as South Africa, Germany, France, or India? How do they relate to gender, sexuality, racial inclusion and questions of disability? What are the ideal numbers? This class will be taught as a film workshop in which we will begin by investigating the initial terms and then organize proposals for a short film projects. We will also examine and design new paths for distribution and ultimately screen the films on campus and online.
