Lecture | Shared Governance | Interdisciplinary Studies

Please join us for an interdisciplinary lecture and roundtable discussion about how race, class, gender and other forms of identity can radicalize art + design education. The third in a series of lectures, Shared Governance is part of an interdisciplinary Wintersession course called Un-Silencing the Canon. This event features guests Debora Rafael Sergio Smith, IDEO; Thomas Gardner, MICA Social Design; Emily Watlington, MIT List Arts Curatorial Fellow; and Michelle Charest, faculty, RISD History of Art + Visual Culture.

These workshops will challenge conventional notions of diversity: the harmonious ensemble of benign cultural spheres of undisruptive spaces. Instead, the course asserts radical and antagonistic educational strategies for dealing with the old guard of art and design education.
