Description: Students explore the ways in which performers, artists and writers have imagined decolonizing themselves, their societies and environments across a range of geographic, historical and contemporary sites. Students develop the skills and knowledges to name and debate key concepts emerging from the art and literature of environmental decolonization. They research and analyze examples of visual art, literature and performance and evaluate the contradictory processes behind their production, reception, distribution and exchange in the context of global structures and systems. Drawing on these examples and working with experiential processes students develop, present and evaluate their own decolonial arts projects.
