Thirty graduate students from history, performance studies, English, design, art history and art studio will present their research exploring the pressing issues of our time, including environmental destruction, racism and immigration, while offering both practical and idealistic ways of thinking about and solving problems, or engaging with personal experiences, memory and aesthetic practices.
