Critical Ethnic Studies Studio introduce students to the interrelations between race/ethnicity, art making and design practices. These courses complement the Critical Ethnic Studies Seminars with their hands-on approach in which themes of ethnic identity are incorporated into studio and community practices.Section Description:Food holds the history of our struggles and resilience. But what is the potential of food as a creative material for intervention? This course connects the intersections of food, form, and political action. Through readings by interdisciplinary scholars and hands-on action including Glide Memorial’s Feed the Hungry, urban farming, and cooking, we will use food as a lens to decolonize constructions of race, class, and gender. We will also learn about the history of why and how food has been traditionally excluded from the realm of fine art. The course will culminate in a final project that connects the coursework with each student’s creative practice.
