Visitors Series: Creative Abolitionism: A Contemporary Praxis Workshop
Amelia M. Kraehe will facilitate a workshop on creative abolitionist strategies to grapple with racism in and through the arts.
Amelia M. Kraehe is Associate Professor of Art and Visual Culture Education and Co-director of the Racial Justice Studio at the University of Arizona and coeditor of The Palgrave Handbook of Race and the Arts in Education. Her scholarship, teaching, and public engagement focus on how the arts and arts education can challenge, but also reinforce, systems of inequality. She explores this seeming contradiction by investigating the ways in which the arts, as both a disciplinary discourse and creative cultural practices, mediate social movements, ideological formation and transformation, identity and agency. Her forthcoming book is Race and Art Education (Davis Publications).
