Mapping a Dialogue: Marginalized Youth and Literacy

(during Museum Nights: Art in Engineering) 

The collision of thought processes around innovative ways of visualizing social inequities often brings artists, educators, and engineers together. Join Michelle Tillander, Associate Professor of Art and Sally Crane, PhD candidate in the College of Education for a conversation ignited by the artwork Prison Searches in regard to the mediated sociocultural landscape, literacy, and the school-to-prison pipeline. Current research will be shared as well as some of the tensions (i.e. personal and political) that arise from dialogues and creative practices of artists and scholars who explore issues of youth inequity.
