ONT 110 PZ -Healing Arts and Social Change

Institution: Pitzer

Description: This course focuses on the intersection of the healing arts, academia, and activism, bridging personal transformation and social change. The course’s interdisciplinary theoretical frameworks (including cultural studies, feminist methodologies, indigenous studies, and social movement theory) offer diverse strategies for engaging the healing arts as a vehicle for self-realization and community empowerment. Students will engage in self-expression, self-discovery and community-building through creative writing, dance, music, art and meditation. Half of the course will take place on site at a local prison where students will engage in a shared educational journey with the inmates, thus exploring how our built environments (the prison and college campus) impact our resources, access and ability to negotiate practices for individual transformation and social change.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
