This LWYL course is designed to explore the foundational causes of and responses to racial and social injustice in the United States. It will feature leading experts in five primary areas: democracy and voting rights, incarceration and criminal (in)justice, educational institutions, climate justice, and urban housing policies and segregation. This course will bring together two or three speakers exploring structural injustices in these different institutional contexts. Discussions of policy and social activism will alternate with sessions by leading artists, poets, musicians, and curators who will explore related artistic interventions and arts activism. There will be five sessions each semester (approximately one every three weeks). These seminars will be followed up by in-house discussion groups. 

When Offered Fall, Spring.
