Cultural Production and Social Justice
Cultural Production and Social Justice explores the roles of the arts and humanities in creating a sustainable, because ethical, societal future. It is an “umbrella” project that critically examines, via a series of specific individual and collaborative research projects, the relationship between artistic production such as film, novels, poetry, performance, and social and epistemic justice.
Opportunistic cultural production can shore up prejudice and further injustice. Acknowledging that, the focus of this project is on how artistic work can open out new perspectives that destabilize prejudices and reveal new possibilities. What is the overlap of politics, ethics, and aesthetics?
