Latest Program: Interventions and Resistance: Raced/ Gendered/ Classed Violence in the USA
In fall 2015, The Humanities Institute sought to address and confront some of the devastating effects of intersecting forms of violence committed against people of marginalized identities in contemporary United States. In spite of these crises, there are people doing tremendous work of interventions, agitation and resistance; work that is constant, multifaceted, simultaneous and that perseveres.
In spring 2016, The Humanities Institute will welcome scholars-artists-activists, poets, writers, and musicians — all visionaries who use their brilliant skills, intellect and talents to further the discussions of systemic and overt oppressive violence. As agents of greater change, they further the urgent and necessary work of dismantling systems of inequality and social injustice and provide us with pathways to how activism and social justice can better shape our world.
