TELLING STORIES FOR SOCIAL CHANGE: Confronting Sexual and Domestic Violence at Duke and in Durham
Topics vary, focusing on interdisciplinary work arising from feminist scholarship. Instructor: Staff
This Service-Learning course takes as its centerpiece a story-building collaboration among Duke students and Durham community members that examines societal “visibility” and “invisibility” built by poverty, privilege, physical violence, and injustice. Students will engage in an expansive dialogue on race, class, and gender as unique yet interlinked social barriers to coalition building. Students will also investigate the ways in which personal narratives and storytelling advocate for social justice and reform.
