Or how language serves as a source and protector of community?
Are you curious about how imagery has been used to stereotype and to oppress -- and to liberate -- marginalized communities?

The School is home for students and faculty looking for that singular line that connects question to answer, while embracing the many intersections along the way. A single line -- many intersections. We are driven by the promise of inclusive inquiry, free of borders. As instructors and researchers, we know the benefits of multidisciplinarity; the value of methodological diversity; and the necessity of inclusion of experience, of perspective, and of voice. Learning and science cannot be accomplished behind a closed door. Our doors are open!
"No one is without knowledge except he who asks no questions" ~ African Proverb
