Teaching "Art as Social Justice:" Developing Prefigurative Pedagogies in the (Liberal) Art Studio
Miner, Dylan A. T.
International Journal of Education & the Arts, v14 spec iss 2.2 Sep 2013
In an era of expanding global capital, our role as educators remains one in which we must confront the ever growing discrepancy between the North and South, including the South within the North. Through my experiences teaching a course called "Art as Social Justice," I begin to situate my classroom labor within an emancipatory framework that "prefigures" a more just and equitable world, as well as a classroom that challenges inequality. Employing thick description, this essay investigates "Art as Social Justice" as a case study that employs specific pedagogical tactics to challenge hegemonic social relations, not only in the classroom, but outside it as well. As the essay explores, visual art enables different ways of dealing with issues inaccessible to political science, history, sociology, or even literature.
