New General Education course Art 382/480: Topics in Art: Prison Aesthetics and Policy

SHARE WITH STUDENTS—New General Education course Art 382/480: Topics in Art: Prison Aesthetics and Policy.  No prerequisites.

Prison Aesthetics and Policy will be exciting for students who want to learn more about prisons, those engaged in related research, and art or theater students who want to apply their aesthetic skills to new problems. The class will spend time analyzing sensory experiences, proposing new ways to monitor prisons, and learning from those who enact and experience prison policy. The class combines interactive learning, dialogue, field trips and guest lectures. Formerly incarcerated people and family members will participate in some of the projects.

This class would be especially interesting for students from CLJ, Sociology, Anthropology, Political Science, Social Work, Media Studies, Public Health, Neuroscience, Theater and Music, African American Studies, Latin American Students, and MUSE.  To register as an undergraduate student, please contact Alexandra Graves at angraves@uic.edu or stop by the CADA Office of Student Affairs in 208 of Jefferson Hall.
