MD 215 - Self and Other

How do we recognize difference in our selves and in others? How is our understanding of the world influenced by stereotypes, curiosity, or fear? From maps and photography to bedtime stories, this class will explore the motivations and methods for knowing our selves and how we relate to others. We will experiment with ideas of empowerment and exploitation from the perspective of minority and majority communities. Themes that we will cover will include language, technology, disability, archives and museums, gender, visual arts and aesthetics, religion, and popular culture.
