Sarah Ross: Art Education Tenure Review Public Presentation
Wednesday, October 6, 2021
Artists and educators who teach in prison often talk about their work as “humanizing” or “giving voice to” vulnerable groups through creative and educational work. What is being said when well-meaning educators and artists frame their work as “humanizing” people who are already fully human? In this talk Sarah Ross, assistant professor in the Art Education department at SAIC, discusses recent writing and projects working with artists in prison and tries to trouble the humanizing discourse, flipping the script to ask who needs humanizing.
