A ED 225 Diversity, Pedagogy, and Visual Culture (3)

(BA) This course meets the Bachelor of Arts degree requirements.

This interdisciplinary course will serve to introduce students to critical understandings of issues of diversity, as they arise in contexts such as the art world, cultural institutions (such as museums and community arts organizations), schools, visual culture, and the culture, educational texts (such as curricula), and history, while developing a theoretical base from educational and cultural theory. By the end of the course, students will understand diversity as broadly defined in relation to visual culture and be able to critically explore the complex dynamics of race, gender, sex, and class, and the pedagogical issues posed by diversity.
