This course explores the art and activism of queer and trans Black, Indigenous and people of colour in Toronto. In addition to studying a range of emergent theories and political interventions, students are invited to design an experiential, creative or community-based project. The course provides an in-depth case study of a successful movement for urban and environmental justice that offers important tools to dismantle nterlocking regimes of oppression, archive pasts that are often erased, map spaces of resistance, and prefigure the world we want to live in.
Prerequisites: Fourth-year standing or by permission of the Instructor; Students with third- year standing may have access subject to space availability and approval from the Faculty.
