PROGRAM OVERVIEW

EXPLORING DISSENT THROUGH PERFORMATIVE STORYTELLING

Focus on the notion of DISSENT as a LIBERTARIAN AND RESPONSIBLE PRACTICE to become active citizens, not as a populistic or nihilistic attitude. Focus on VULNERABILITY as a resilient strategy.

You will learn to appreciate dissent as a SOCIAL DEVICE that relates to CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY, to ACT THROUGH LANGUAGE AND MEDIA upon a variety of discourses employed by institutions, agencies of power, corporations.

You will turn from IRONIC SPECTATORS TO ACTIVE THINKERS through seminars, charrettes, workshops, field work and more.

You will explore MEDIA ECOLOGY from a new angle at our MEDIA ECOLOGY LECTURE.
